Master courses


Due to ongoing uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus pandemic and the disruption to travel and social gatherings into 2021, UICC has decided to call off the World Cancer Congress planned for March 2021 in Oman.

To ensure UICC members may continue benefit from the learning opportunities provided by the Master courses’ online component, five courses will be delivered in 2020 following an entirely online model. Click here for more details.



Acquire specialised knowledge through a unique blended-learning offer

Since 2014, Master Courses have complemented the programmes of World Cancer Congresses addressing a range of cancer, as well as organisational, topics, supporting the continuing education of more than 700 cancer control professionals over the years.

Purpose-built by internationally recognised leaders in their field, Master Courses combine an online learning component in the three months prior to Congress, with a face-to-face workshop, in a unique blend of modular learning and peer-exchange.
