Made possible by a generous grant from the Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation, the Lurie Cancer Center invites fellows and residents to apply for the Lynn Sage Symposium Scholars Program, which will take place in conjunction with the 19th Annual Lynn Sage Breast Cancer Symposium (September 14 - 17, 2017 in Chicago).
The Lynn Sage Symposium Scholars Program provides fellows and residents with the opportunity to attend one of the most respected breast cancer meetings in the country, learn about the latest clinical and scientific advances in breast cancer research, collaborate with esteemed colleagues in the field, and meet breast cancer experts from around the world.
In addition to attending the main symposium sessions, awardees also participate in a forum designed to offer unique perspectives of the different career options available to residents and fellows. Physicians from both the academic and private practice settings will present their experiences, recommendations, and guidance on the career paths available to residents and fellows.
