Master courses offer a unique opportunity to acquire specialised knowledge and skills. Each course is purpose-built by internationally-recognised cancer control professionals to meet specific needs for continuing education of those engaged in cancer control from various disciplines, and at different levels. They are offered free of charge to those who register for the World Cancer Congress.
The courses consist of 3 months of distance learning in cancer or non-cancer related organisational and technical topics, offering specialised information and skills, and culminating in one day, face-to-face workshops at the World Cancer Congress. All courses are led by international experts in the relevant fields and delivered via UICC's eLearning platform, UICC eCampus.
