Oncology

Cancer is a major global health problem that is projected to grow due to expanding and ageing populations along with a general shift towards more sedentary lifestyles and unhealthy diets. The lack of effective primary healthcare and prohibitive costs means prevention is still a distant dream for many. 

Our curriculum addresses not only the fundamentals of cancer and its management, but also the fear, misconceptions, and myths surrounding the disease.

The program is presently being implemented in 2 hospitals in India by our local partners, in collaboration with Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology and Narayana Health Mysore.
