Online learning


For UICC members only badge

UICC has been supporting the continuing education of cancer control professionals through online learning since 2014. Starting from a limited number of blended learning opportunities combining an online component with in-person workshops at the World Cancer Congress, UICC’s online learning offer has evolved over the years and now includes a dedicated eLearning platform hosting a range of both self-paced and faculty led online courses.

UICC recognises the key role online learning can play in ensuring specialised knowledge in cancer control is accessible to all employees of UICC member organisations. This trend has only accelerated following the events of 2020.

As UICC expands its role in this space, we welcome members’ feedback on how best online learning can be leveraged to support the needs of the cancer community.

Master courses

Master courses are online courses purpose-built by internationally recognised leaders in their field addressing priority subjects in cancer control through a unique blend of modular learning and peer-exchange. Launched at regular intervals, they are faculty-led and follow a fixed 3-to-4-month schedule within which the course must be completed. Participation is capped to guarantee a level of interactivity among learners and selection is on a competitive basis.


CEO Voices is a series of podcasts where leaders in the field of global cancer control share the story of what inspires their work from building their own cancer organisations to becoming global cancer leaders.  Click here to listen to the CEO Voices podcast.

Self-guided courses

Self-guided courses are online courses in which the pace of learning is set by the learner and all learning materials are available from the start on an on-demand basis rather than accessible in stages. Self-guided courses are not bound to a fixed schedule and can be completed at any time. The content of self-guided courses is sourced from past Master courses, hence benefit from the same expertise and knowledge, however they do not include the live support of faculty.


The courses have been accredited by the Accreditation Council of Oncology in Europe (ACOE) providing Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits to participants on completion of the course.

Six self-guided courses are currently available for staff of UICC member organisations. To access the courses you need to sign-up for or sign-in to your UICC eLearning account.
