WHY INVEST IN YOUNG MEDICAL ONCOLOGISTS?

Roberto Labianca

Director

Department of Oncology and Hematology

Ospedali Riuniti

Bergamo, Italy


Who are ymo

WHO ARE YMO?

  • YOUNG (besides yourself…): under 21 (as in football: Mario Balotelli)? less than 30 (common sense)? 35 (AIOM)? 40 (ESMO)?...but now all these terms are increasing!

  • MEDICAL ONCOLOGIST: see the ESMO official definition

  • In practice: about 70% of doctors working in our Institutions (70-80% women)


Why invest in young medical oncologists

WHY?

  • Because they are “fresh” and creative (you will have a proof very soon!)

  • Because they still have the dream to win cancer

  • Because the future of Oncology is in their hands

  • Because we, as their mentors (or “ differently young people”), have many things to learn from them…and of course many things to teach them

  • But chiefly because they obtained very important results in this field and have time to obtain other outstanding achievements


Where

WHERE?

  • In every Oncology Institution (academic or not)

  • In every day clinical practice

  • In clinical research

  • …but chiefly in translational research (they know and understand the molecular pathways better than most of us)…

  • In Oncology Societies

  • In Cooperative Groups

HOW?

  • In National and International Societies (AIOM, ESMO…): promoting specific YMO groups, Masterclasses, dedicated events inside the Congresses…

  • In Cooperative Groups: stimulating research projects by them

  • In your Hospitals: accelerating their passage into the “salary” area…

  • …and creating Units for clinical/translational research with responsability to them

  • In Pharma world: including them in the advisory boards and in the scientific committees of registrative trials
