Multidisciplinary Cancer Management Courses (MCMC) improve cancer care globally by:

  • Promoting interdisciplinary cancer management among specialists, surgeons, pathologists, and members of the oncology caregiving team
  • Teaching multidisciplinary management of the most prevalent cancer types in the host country
  • Providing mock tumor boards and education on different aspects of treatment, from initial presentation to end of life care

89% of attendees have increased participation in tumor boards or treatment discussion plans with other colleagues following the course.

"Train the Trainer" Program

"Train the Trainer" refers to a 1-2 day optional training workshop held before the MCMC program. The program is designed to help participants:

  • Increase their understanding of multidisciplinary cancer care concepts;
  • Learn effective teaching methods and practical skills for course implementation;
  • Understand general teaching principles and elements of multidisciplinary treatment;
  • Discuss implementation strategies for organizing trainings within their own communities and institutions
