Since its inception in 1976, the UICC fellowships have contributed to the development of the professional capacity of over 2500 UICC Fellows from over 110 countries by facilitating appropriate person-to-person training in specific areas that are relevant to cancer control activities and clinical management being conducted in the Fellows’ home countries.
The aim of the UICC technical fellowships is to allow the international exchange of knowledge and to enhance skills in cancer control, prevention and treatment and to allow the acquisition of diagnostic and therapeutic clinical expertise that can be applied in the fellows’ home organizations upon their return.
