The BC Cancer Agency’s Family Practice Oncology Network offers an 8-week General Practitioner in Oncology training program beginning with a 2-week introductory session every spring and fall at the Vancouver Centre.

Fall session: 9-20 Sep; Spring session: 3-14 Feb 2020.

This program provides an opportunity for rural family physicians, with the support of their community, to strengthen their oncology skills so that they may provide enhanced care for local cancer patients and their families.
Following the introductory session, participants complete a further 30 days of customized clinic experience at the cancer centre where their patients are referred. These can be scheduled flexibly over 6 months

Participants who complete the program are eligible for credits from the College of Family Physicians of Canada. Those who are REAP-eligible receive a stipend and expense coverage through UBC’s Enhanced Skills Program.
