The main objectives of the group are to promote education and provide opportunities for young scientists to participate in research and other scientific activities. Methods: The actions of HeGYO during the last 4 years were reviewed. Results: In 2016 HeGYO had 235 members (135 trainees, 150 men). HeGYO organized educational seminars and workshops on different topics such as “Bioinformatics and Oncology”, “Acute Oncology” and participated in Hellenic Academy of Oncology. HeGYO participated in all annual HeSMO conferences with interesting roundtables ("Education and Career Development in Oncology", "HeSMO Guidelines", "Survivorship in Oncology") and organized 2 years the well attended seminar on “Making the right career choices as a young oncologist”. It completed a European survey on "Education and Career Development in Oncology". Results of survey were announced at HeSMO, ESMO and ASCO conferences. Three similar surveys are ongoing on "Toxicity Management", "Acute Oncology", "Thrombosis and Cancer". HeGYO members took over Greek translation of ESMO Patient Guides, publication of informative manuals for patients and of a manual on “New Biological Therapies in Oncology”. A HeGYO member is sitting in ESMO Young Oncologist Committee (ESMO YOC) providing the link between committees. Conclusions: HeGYO is an integral and dynamic part of HeSMO and with its ongoing support it had the opportunity to organize interesting scientific events and other actions for the benefit of patients and young colleagues. Key words: education, young oncologists, career development, oncology, supportive care, Hellenic Group of Young Oncologists (HeGYO)
