BPOS is keen to foster networking between students doing PhDs in the area of psychosocial oncology.
In 2012 we hosted our first one day event specifically for PhD students with the theme ‘Surviving the Psychosocial Oncology PhD’. The event was attended by 15 students and the main aim was to provide an opportunity for students to meet each other, share experiences and hopefully develop a supportive network . As well as networking opportunities we ran sessions on the emotional impact of psychosocial oncology research and relationships with supervisors.
Feedback was very positive and we hosted another event in 2013.
