■From ASCO
I would just like to express once again ASCO’s appreciation to JSMO for their thinking of us as a collaborator on this important initiative, and for the excellent planning and implementation of a very important and beneficial meeting. We will look forward to doing this again!

■From Faculty(ASCO)
I also want to, again, acknowledge each of you who served as faculty. Chikashi made me sit in the front row throughout the 2 days, so I actually listened and learned!! Great job.
I echo Lillian’s perception of the enthusiasm of the “students.” That made our job even more easy.
I look forward to ongoing JSMO/ASCO collaborations in this initiative – it will only get even better!

■From Faculty(ASCO)
Thanks for a fantastic meeting - I must admit that this has been one of the most interactive meetings with young investigators I have participated in and they are so engaged, enthusiastic and curious. Thank you both JSMO and ASCO for organizing this and I am so glad to be a part of it.

■From Facilitator(JSMO)
I was very impressed with that many participants actively asked questions and discussed with faculties, facilitators, and other participants.
The workshop was very successful, and it was a very nice opportunity for both participants and facilitators to learn a lot.
I hope that the JSMO will continually hold this workshop.

■From Facilitator(JSMO)
Young oncologists are quite active. The workshop was good opportunity to interact them and stimulative for me. Lecture was comprehensive and infromative. I was also able to communicate with ASCO faculties and received good suggestions for my research.

■From Facilitator(JSMO)
This JSMO/ASCO Young Oncologist Workshop 2018 was very nice and helpful.
The program was comprehensive with hot topics for oncologists andinteractive.
It was good opportunities for communicating and discussing with the distinguished leaders and each attendee.
The purpose of this workshop is very clear.
Workshop itself was proceeded very smoothly and it was enough time Q&A session in each lecture. These were very comfortable.
Hopefully, this workshop will be held continuously for training the young medical oncologists as one of the official educational programs in JSMO/ASCO.
Thank you very much for JSMO/ASCO all staffs.
