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.
Transfer of cancer control knowledge, skills and techniques through one month international visits
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.
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.
