SIO is proud to partner with the following international organizations. If you are interested in starting a joint membership with SIO, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of SIO’s efforts to advance interventional oncology as the fourth pillar of cancer therapy worldwide, the society established its first regional chapter: the Asia-Oceanic Chapter. The Asia-Oceanic Chapter is currently comprised of regional societies that have entered into agreements with SIO for a group membership price. Each of these socities hold their own programmatic efforts in that region and extend membership benefits to individuals who elect to join SIO through their organizational agreements. Chapter members can attend relevant, local programming and network with other IO professionals within the region – while also enjoying the full benefits of a regular SIO membership.
