The Graduate Certificate in Cancer Sciences provides students with an in-depth course of study into the oncological sciences. It utilises a contemporary, evidence-based program for clinicians and scientists to improve the outcomes and experiences of cancer patients.

The Graduate Certificate in Cancer Sciences is 50-point program that can be completed over 12 months part-time, or 6 months, full-time. Students will be required to undertake one core subject covering the Foundations of Cancer. They will then choose an additional three subjects 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.
