Our aim is to have at least one (preferably two) family physician in every BC community with 15,000 people who has completed this program and can support all aspects of cancer care for local patients and their families.
If you are interested in enhancing your oncology knowledge and skills, are willing to take on these responsibilities in your community, and have the support of your colleagues and other local health care providers, then please consider our program.

The program is offered in a flexible format that can be taken over six months. The full-time, two-week Introductory Module is offered every February and September at the BC Cancer Vancouver Centre focusing on medical, radiation, and pediatric oncology protocols and supportive care requirements necessary to provide enhance care for cancer patients.
Thirty days of clinical rotation are then completed at the BC Cancer Centre where participants' patients are referred and participants are encouraged to tailor their learning specific to their community’s needs.
