Oncology education across Africa

23 March, 2021

A new special issue just published in ecancer reflects the progress made in oncology education across Africa - showing the importance of developing collaboration beyond political or geographical borders. The COVID-19 pandemic has made the development of effective approaches for online education even more necessary, and this issue aims to contribute towards the development of medical education of the highest standards, strengthening the process of continuous learning.

The issue includes articles on the experience of training oncologists in a low resource setting in Zimbabwe, oncology nursing education in Africa, and building oncology radiation capacity for low and middle income countries (LMICs) through collaboration, mentorship and research.

The special issue is open access and can be read here: https://ecancer.org/en/journal/special-issue/27-oncology-education-in-af...
