BC Cancer’s Family Practice Oncology Network offers an 8-week General Practitioner in Oncology education program beginning with a 2-week introductory session every spring and fall at BC Cancer–Vancouver. This program provides an opportunity for rural family physicians, with the support of their community, to strengthen their oncology skills so that they can provide enhanced care for local cancer patients and their families. Following the introductory session, participants complete a further 30 days of clinic experience at the Cancer Centre where their patients are referred. These are scheduled flexibly over 6 months. Participants who complete the program are eligible for credits from the College of Family Physicians of Canada.
