Welcome Note

The Pediatric Oncology East and Mediterranean Group was established in 2013 as a cooperative platform for physicians, scientist and healthcare professionals from institutions in the Eastern and Mediterranean area with the goal of sharing experience, initiation of cooperative trials and establishing common strategies to achieve optimization of the care of pediatric oncology patients.

The mission of the POEM Group is to continuously improve Pediatric Oncology care, research, training and advocacy in the East and Mediterranean Region by means of integrated teamwork.

Our Vision for POEM is to be the leading Pediatric Oncology Collaborative Group in the East and Mediterranean Region.
