“The IPOS Academy was inspiring and educative. It has yielded so much positive impact and influence on my clinical practice.”
Quote from previous attendee of the 2015 Marrakesh Training Academy
Advancing Cancer Care in Africa.
2017 IPOS Training Academy in Kigali, Rwanda, November 5-6, 2017
Theme: Psycho-Oncology in Cancer Prevention and Control in Africa
IPOS has developed, in close partnership with our colleagues in Africa and in collaboration with AORTIC, a Training Academy on the theme of Cancer Prevention and Control in Africa. The goal of this Training Academy is to train African health care professionals to 1) better understand cultural, social, and psychological barriers to cancer prevention in Africa, and 2) address these barriers through evidenced-based programs (see preliminary program here).
Scholarships will be provided to key African health care professionals (psychologists, physicians, nurses) to attend the 2017 IPOS Training Academy and AORTIC Congress in Rwanda, Africa. The number of scholarships will depend on funding. Scholarships will cover costs of training, flight, hotel, and meals up to a certain amount. For more information on the scholarships and how to apply, please see here.
