Martin Harutyunyan: Although our mentorship program has officially ended, we will continue to collaborate for the benefit of our patients

Martin Harutyunyan, Medical Oncologist at the 

“My journey in palliative care began 1.5 years ago when I presented pain management and palliative care to primary care physicians. Although the presentation didn’t go well, the topic stuck with me. Two days before the deadline, I stumbled upon the 2023 ESCO Mentorship Programme and applied immediately. I was delighted to receive an acceptance letter from ESO and was even more thrilled to find out that Dr. Matti Aapro would be my mentor. I knew that my professional life would be forever changed from the first Zoom meeting with Dr. Aapro. He supported me every step of the way to becoming a palliative care specialist. We had online meetings twice a month and three in-person meetings over the past year. During these meetings, Dr. Aapro showed me what ideal supportive/palliative care looks like and introduced me to many experts in oncology and supportive/palliative care. With his help, I was able to improve the quality of life of our patients.

I am grateful to the European School of Oncology for this amazing opportunity. Dr. Matti Aapro and his team have shown me all aspects of palliative care and helped me make a difference in the lives of our patients.

Although our mentorship program has officially ended, we will continue to collaborate for the benefit of our patients.”
