The RN and Allied Health courses focus on putting theory into practice for those responsible for the direct care of cancer patients (nurses, advanced practice nurses, pharmacists, radiology and radiation oncology technicians, social workers, dietitians, physical therapists, speech therapists, etc.). They equip nurses and allied health professionals with tools they need to be successful when caring for cancer patients.

The Medical and Surgical Oncology lectures are intended for oncologists, hematologists, surgeons, advanced practice nurses, physician assistants, researchers, pharmacists, and/or those professionals who provide care to patients with cancer on a regular basis. They cover the spectrum of cancer theory, cutting-edge cancer care, and research.
