Online learning

UICC has been supporting the continuing education of cancer control professionals through online learning since 2014.

For UICC Members only

Starting from a limited number of blended learning opportunities combining an online component with in-person workshops at the World Cancer Congress, UICC’s online learning offer has evolved over the years and now includes a dedicated eLearning platform hosting a range of both self-paced and cohort-based online courses.

UICC recognises the key role online learning can play in ensuring specialised knowledge in cancer control is accessible to all employees of UICC member organisations. Through the online learning offer we aim to provide evidence-based knowledge on key topics related to global cancer control as well as providing opportunities for UICC members to connect with and learn from each other through interactive live sessions and discussion activities.

As UICC expands its role in this space, we welcome members’ feedback on how best online learning can be leveraged to support the needs of the cancer community.
