UICC Fellowships

SIOG and UICC join forces to offer short-term international training opportunities in geriatric oncology
SIOG and UICC are offering individuals working in geriatric oncology the opportunity to learn valuable new skills and techniques in cancer control from leading experts through one month international visits. The UICC Technical Fellowships programme supports the international exchange of skills and knowledge with the aim of increasing workforce capacity in cancer control and increasing collaboration between organisations, with the ultimate goal of improving cancer prevention, treatment, and care. Through this partnership with SIOG, the programme hopes to build the capacity of health professionals to specifically address the needs of older adults with cancer, given the growing burden of cancer in this population. For more information on how to apply, please visit the UICC website, join the weekly Q&A zoom call at 14:00 CET or contact fellows@uicc.org.
