The WICR Career Mentoring Session has become one of the most popular Professional Advancement Sessions at the Annual Meeting. This session is designed for graduate students, medical students and residents, and clinical and postdoctoral fellows.

Following a keynote address, attendees will meet, network, and learn from many of the leading senior scientists in cancer research. Attendees participate in roundtable discussions and change tables halfway through the session if they choose. This allows for additional networking opportunities with more than one mentor. Topics will include grant writing, work/life integration, careers in industry, choosing a postdoctoral position, oral presentations, and many more.
