Developing an FETP Cancer Curriculum

Project objective: To develop the FETP cancer curriculum, including slide presentations, facilitator’s guides, case studies, and field exercises for four modules (cancer epidemiology, comprehensive cancer control programs, cancer registries, and cancer screening programs). The project also aims to provide technical assistance to FETP residents conducting non-research cancer projects through the awarding of mini-grants. The curriculum is available on the CDC FETP and TEPHINET websites for countries to increase capacity in cancer prevention, control, and surveillance.
