The course provides fundamental training for physicians, nurses, pathologists, and residents in countries where patients with cancer are frequently treated by non-specialists. The MCMC teaches multidisciplinary management of the most prevalent cancer types in the host country and includes mock tumor board discussions and education in the aspects of treatment from initial presentation to end of life care. Topics include breast, colon, anal canal, rectal, lung, prostate and head and neck cancers, among others. Other presentations are available for end-of-life care, clinical trials, prevention and screening, and more.
