The Specialist Certificate in Cancer Sciences gives students an introduction to cancer science, research and care. It utilises a contemporary, evidence-based program for clinicians and scientists to improve the outcomes and experiences of cancer patients.
The Specialist Certificate is a 25-point program that can be completed either over 3 months full-time, or 6 months, part-time. Students will be required to undertake one core subject covering the Foundations of Cancer. They will then choose an additional subject from the elective suite, which covers a wide range of topics relevant to the oncological workforce.
The Cancer Sciences suite has been developed and presented by leading clinicians and researchers from the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC). Designed to broaden the skills of medical practitioners, pharmacists, nurses, allied health practitioners and scientists; this program will hone transferrable knowledge and skills to improve clinical research, education and care.
