Since 2014, Master courses have complemented the programmes of every World Cancer Congress, supporting the continuing education of more than 700 cancer control professionals over the years.
Purpose-built by internationally recognised leaders in their field, Master courses combine an online learning component with a face-to-face workshop at the Congress, in a unique blend of modular learning and peer-exchange. Subjects range from across three thematic areas: organisation and programme management, cancer control interventions, and health systems and policies.
With the suspension of the World Cancer Congress 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, UICC has taken the decision to adapt the courses’ delivery model this year to ensure the cancer community, and UICC members in particular, can still benefit from the learning opportunities provided by the courses’ online component in 2020.
Three Master courses opened their online component for applications from UICC members in 2020. Read the summary below for an overview of the applications received and the course delivery for 2020.
