ICLIO Scholars

ICLIO Scholars are designated based upon their contributions to the development of the ICLIO curriculum and programming, including conferences, webinars, newsletters, and focus groups.

In addition, participants who successfully complete three topic-specific—or one role-specific—online learning modules will earn the distinction of ICLIO Scholar. That’s great exposure for you—and your cancer program!

ICLIO Founding Scholars have been influential in the development of the ICLIO program design since the Institute’s inception in 2015. Founding Scholars include members of the ICLIO Advisory Committee, leading experts from academic and community practices whose contributions will provide cancer care professionals with practical I-O knowledge.
