The American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO)'s Virtual Mentoring Program (VMP) is an initiative that pairs association members with mentors outside of their institution to address unmet career development needs of practicing oncologists, populations underrepresented in medicine, women in oncology, international oncologists and oncologists in training. The VMP utilizes experienced ASCO members to provide support for interested mentees' individual learning, growth and professional development. Mentors and mentees meet for at least one hour each month during the yearlong program.
