About Fellows of the American Society for Clinical Oncology (FASCO)

Formerly called the ASCO Statesman Award, the FASCO distinction recognizes ASCO members for their extraordinary volunteer service, dedication, and commitment to ASCO. Their efforts benefit ASCO, the specialty of oncology, and, most importantly, the patients for whom they serve.

ASCO Members are eligible to become a Fellow if they have accumulated 20 or more points for volunteer service to ASCO. Eligibility is limited to Active members of Society. Points are calculated using a point system.
