PM2 Collaborative Education Series logo

About PM2

The exchange of knowledge, technical skills, and expertise in cancer prevention, early detection and diagnosis, palliative care, and treatment, are key elements to strengthening a workforce's capacity in cancer control. PM2 is a Collaborative Education Series that is held jointly by Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto, Canada and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne, Australia. The purpose of the series is to showcase, share, and build capacity in cancer by enabling collaborations across institutions.
