Summer students (high school and postsecondary) with placements in the Cancer Program at the University Health Network (UHN) are invited to participate in the Cancer 360+ Summer Student Program.
Cancer 360+ runs in parallel with summer placements. The program aims to equip and empower potential cancer professionals through topics not typically covered in training, with the goal of supporting a well-rounded, adaptive cancer workforce.
The Summer 2022 course is now closed. Check back in early 2023 for details about the Summer 2023 course.

eCertificate of Completion
This set of units is a coordinated suite of offerings, with each unit building upon and informing the next. For learners who complete all 10 educational units, an eCertificate of Completion for Cancer 360 will be awarded. Please note that if a unit has questions or a quiz associated with it, you must also complete these items to complete the unit.
