Trainee and Early-career Attendees

Trainee and Early-career Networking Luncheon

The Trainee and Early-career Networking Luncheon offers attendees an invaluable opportunity to speak with and learn from experts in the head and neck cancers care community. Join faculty in an informal setting to discuss topics such as how to build a network outside of your institution, how to establish yourself as a clinical investigator, how to evaluate job opportunities and how to move on after your first job. By attending, you will gain meaningful insight into career paths and development that will help support you in your medical career. (Note: Early-career is defined as any attendee who is less than three years out of their training.)

Those interested in attending must register for this free, ticketed event.

Date and time: Friday, February 16, 2018, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.


  • Medical Oncology representative: Robert I. Haddad, MD, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Boston
  • Radiation Oncology representative: Randall J. Kimple, MD, PhD, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, Madison, Wisconsin
  • Surgery representative: Maie St. John, MD, PhD, UCLA Medical Center, Los Angeles

Expert Office Hours – New this year!

Symposium leadership understands the importance of mentorship for early-career attendees, and in an effort to provide further guidance from more senior faculty, for the first time ever we are offering Expert Office Hours. The program has many opportunities for interactive Q and A throughout all sessions, but we hope this will allow a small group of attendees a deeper dive into tough questions/cases.

Expert Office Hours offer a limited number of 20-minute face-to-face sessions with multidisciplinary experts in the field of head and neck cancers care. Personal, one-on-one conversations are meant to address anything from general career advice to more specific questions regarding research or a difficult case. 

Attendees can register for one of the two slots offered for a faculty member, and please be advised to register early as there are only a limited number of slots.
