Geriatric Oncology Educational Centers

With the increasing awareness of the relevance of geriatric oncology, there are increasing training and research opportunities worldwide. However, most of these are not well advertised and there is no centralized location where interested trainees can easily find this information.
SIOG has collected and published a comprehensive database of training and research opportunities in geriatric oncology available worldwide. This project has been supported by the Young SIOG interest group.
SIOG acknowledges the following SIOG members for extensive contribution to the project. Nicolò Matteo Luca Battisti (UK/IT), Silvio Monfardini (IT), Nienke de Glas (NL), Ron Maggiore (US), Capucine Baldini (FR), Manuel Rodrigues (FR), Tina Hsu (CND) and Kah Poh Loh (US).
NB: SIOG performs regular updates of this database. We do however rely on the support from the geriatric oncology community to provide us with updates regarding any new training or research program or any new developments on those listed here. Please contact for any amendments or update.
