Since its inception in 1976, the UICC fellowships have contributed to the development of the professional capacity of over 2500 UICC Fellows from over 110 countries by facilitating appropriate person-to-person training in specific areas that are relevant to the cancer research, clinical management and other cancer control activities being conducted in the Fellows’ home countries. Read more for testimonials by awarded fellows.

The aim of the UICC technical fellowships is to allow the international exchange of knowledge and to enhance skills in cancer control, prevention and treatment and to allow the acquisition of diagnostic and therapeutic clinical expertise that can be applied in the fellows’ home organizations upon their return.

These include 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.

The completed application along with all documents must be submitted online in English and are accepted at any time during the year. Applicants must submit proposals electronically through proposalCENTRAL
