Transfer of cancer control knowledge, skills and techniques through one month international visits
Unfortunately, the calls for the Technical Fellowships and the Bourses pour l’Afrique Francophone sub-programme will remain closed until further notice. There will be specific in-person fellowship opportunities available later this year, with more information being provided shortly. Apologies to those candidates already preparing fellowship applications for any inconvenience caused.
Eligible candidates are cancer professionals such as cancer advocates, public health investigators, implementation and translational researchers, pathologists, epidemiologists, tobacco control activists and cancer registrars in the early stages of their careers who hold at least an MSc or MA.
In addition, clinicians and nurses who are established in oncology practice and hold as a minimum an MD degree (for doctors) or RN (for nurses) are eligible to apply.
Medical and PhD Students are not eligible.
Duration of Technical fellowship - Maximum level of funding possible
Generally within 90 days of registration
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.
For additional information regarding potential host institutions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
