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 who have expressed an interest in hosting UICC Fellows.
Established in 1962, the Fellowships is one of UICC's oldest and most established portfolio of programmes.
Virtual Fellowships allow cancer professionals from UICC member organisations to obtain expert learning and guidance in cancer control in English, French or Spanish, through a series of four one-to-one video calls with experts.
En 2017 UICC a lancé un programme de bourses pour le personnel de santé et les autres professionnels travaillant dans le domaine du cancer en Afrique francophone.
The YY Study Grants provide an important opportunity to advance cancer research through international collaboration.
In the last 50 years UICC has awarded over 4000 fellowships to cancer professionals from over 140 different countries.
Fellows who have successfully completed a fellowship are invited to join the Association of UICC Fellows.
UICC regularly reviews its capacity building programmes to ensure UICC programmes are not only contemporary but also targeted to meet the emerging needs of cancer control organisations and contribute to the development of cancer control at a country level.
