Ideally, Technical Fellowship candidates identify and make contact with potential host supervisors themselves. Host institutions do not need to be UICC member organisations, however, in cases where candidates are unable to find a host supervisor, UICC can liaise with UICC members such as HCG Hospitals (India), NCCK (S.Korea) and Icon Group – Leading cancer care provider who have expressed an interest in hosting UICC Fellows. Contact email@example.com for more information.
While candidates working in all fields of cancer control are welcome to apply, applications in cancer prevention and early detection, breast cancer (as part of the broader Breast Cancer Programme) and cancer and ageing are particularly encouraged this year.
