(Those who will complete their fellowships after August 3, 2024)
The Workshop faculty will select approximately 75 clinical fellows from any oncology subspecialty or radiology who have made outstanding progress in their medical training, who have displayed an interest and competence in clinical cancer research, and who come from a diverse group of training institutions and personal backgrounds.
The 75 fellows selected will be provided with complimentary hotel accommodations at the Workshop hotel for the nights of July 28-August 3 (inclusive) and most meals throughout the Workshop. Those selected will be required to share a hotel room with another Workshop participant. Fellows selected to participate will be required to pay a $2,500 registration fee to offset some of the costs of the Workshop and will be responsible for their own air travel. Selected fellows will be responsible for their own transportation to and from the Workshop venue.
(Those who have completed their fellowships between April 30, 2019 and July 28, 2024)
The Workshop faculty will also select approximately 25 junior faculty – i.e., clinical researchers in training who have already embarked on academic careers; who hold an appointment at the level of Assistant Professor, Instructor, or Lecturer; and who completed their fellowships after April 30, 2019.
The 25 junior faculty selected will be provided with most meals throughout the Workshop. Those selected will be responsible for their own air travel and hotel accommodations at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines Resort (required), but may have an opportunity to share a hotel room with another Workshop participant. Junior faculty selected to participate will be required to pay a $2,900 registration fee to offset some of the costs of the Workshop. Selected junior faculty will be responsible for their own transportation to and from the Workshop venue.
The 2024 AACR/ASCO Methods in Clinical Cancer Research Workshop will take place at Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines Resort in La Jolla, California. All participants must stay at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines Resort. La Jolla offers a full complement of summer recreational activities –beaches, golfing, hiking, and swimming – just a short distance from the hotel.
All Workshop participants are required to stay at the Hilton La Jolla Torrey Pines Resort for the nights of July 28-August 3, inclusive. Complimentary breakfast and lunch will be provided throughout the Workshop, in addition to the complimentary group dinners on Sunday and Monday night, and a banquet with dancing on Friday night. The group dinner on Friday is the only Workshop event open to families and guests.
Fellows selected into the Workshop will receive a complimentary hotel room, to be shared with another Workshop participant, for the duration of the Workshop. Private rooms for Fellows, either a single occupancy room or to share the room with a non-workshop participant (i.e., your family member or partner), are limited in number and are assigned on a first come, first served basis. The Workshop will cover $127.50 per night per room for these individual rooms, with the remaining balance to be the responsibility of the participant. The Workshop provides accommodations at a subsidized cost of $127.50 per night plus tax to Fellows not sharing a room ($255 total per night). COSTS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
The room cost for Junior Faculty workshop attendees is $255 per night. This per night cost is for either a single occupancy room or to share your room with a non-workshop participant (i.e., your family member or partner). Junior Faculty have the option to choose to share a room with another Workshop participant to receive a subsidized room rate of $127.50 per night plus tax. COSTS ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE.
For those interested in sharing a hotel room, both for Fellows and Jr. Faculty, a list of the names of those accepted for the Workshop will be made available to accepted applicants so that you may contact friends/colleagues to coordinate room sharing.
- If you elect to share a room with a friend/colleague, please request a room with that person in the designated section of your registration and housing form.
- If you would like to share a room and are not requesting to be paired with a friend/colleague, you may request to receive a Workshop assigned roommate.
- Any Workshop assigned room sharing will be made between attendees of the same preferred gender group.
- The Workshop makes every effort to honor room sharing requests. However, shared room assignments are dependent on the number and type of requests.
