Global Education and Training Initiative (GETI)
The aim of the UICC ICRETT fellowships is to facilitate rapid international transfer of cancer research and clinical technology, exchange knowledge and enhance skills in basic, clinical, behavioural and epidemiological areas of cancer research cancer control and prevention and to acquire appropriate clinical management, diagnostic and therapeutic expertise for effective application and use in the home organization upon return.
