The Community Oncology Program is pleased to offer Professional Development opportunities, previously known as Community Oncology Scholarships. These awards are designed for health professionals affiliated with the Community Oncology Program and to family physicians and nurse practitioners in primary-care practice within Manitoba who would like to enhance their knowledge and skills in cancer care and blood disorders.
Eligible areas include, but are not limited to:
Recipients may apply to their professional organization for credits. Family physicians may apply for self-learning credits from the College of Family Physicians of Canada.
Preference will be given to strong applicants who:
All recipients will be encouraged to commit to serve as a cancer-care resource to their own community or practice group at the end of the traineeship for a minimum of two years.
Family physicians and nurse practitioners who are successful applicants will be asked to commit to accepting the referral of a minimum of six new cancer patients needing a family physician over the 12 months following the completion of their traineeship. This will assist in the challenge of linking patients with new primary-care providers if they lack one.
CancerCare Manitoba Foundation (CCMF) provides grant funding. Recipients will receive salary compensation or course / Conference registration fees. Other expenses may be funded with prior approval.
