Early Career Research & Publications Network

Purpose
The goal of this network is to provide early career members with a supportive network of peers and mentors to discuss publishing and writing as critical components to career development. The network will also allow group members the opportunity to develop and promote research projects.

Eligibility
This network is open to IGCS members dedicated to the study of gynecologic cancers who are within the first five years of completion of sub-specialty training.

Participation
The network will convene via video conference, online discussion boards and in-person meetings at the IGCS Annual Global Meeting.

Joining the Network
Eligible early career members may request to join the network by logging into the IGCS MEMBER CENTER and clicking GROUPS in the top toolbar, then click +Join Group button. A message will be sent to an IGCS staff member who will verify your eligibility and you will receive an approved or denied message, depending on your completion year of training.

Please be sure your graduation year is filled out in your IGCS Member profile as this will determine your eligibility for the group.

If you are not an IGCS Member, Join today!

Mentors
The volunteer mentors have previous and current experience in career development, mentorship, publishing and scientific presentation. The mentors will communicate regularly with the network to stimulate research ideas, provoke and moderate discussions and connect network members.
