For UICC Members only

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-guided and cohort-based online courses.

Through its online learning offer UICC aims to provide evidence-based knowledge on key multidisciplinary topics related to global cancer control, as well as providing opportunities for UICC members to connect with and learn from each other through interactive live sessions and discussion activities.

What do participants say?

“I find the live sessions very valuable because it is a real-time interaction and an opportunity to ask for clarifications for the topics discussed in all the modules. It is a dynamic learning experience that adapts to the needs of the participants. The opportunity to connect with the experts and fellow participants is an added bonus.”
Maria Victoria Arjona, I Can Serve Foundation, Philippines
“This course really broadened my knowledge of how deep supportive care is and how integral it should be in the cancer treatment journey and survivorship support, as well as end of life and dealing with its effect.”
Abena Addai, Brest Care International, Ghana
