Scholarships to Canada and International breast cancer specialists to receive advanced training at a leading USA breast cancer center affiliated with the funding source. The program will bring up to 20 outstanding clinician scholars to attend a 4-week intensive training and preceptorship for them to learn or become expert at new clinical skills.

Due to medical malpractice laws in the USA, these preceptorships will primarily be observational in nature. The exact work plan for the Scholar’s activities and goals will be developed jointly by the Scholar and Mentor during the course of the application process and beyond.

All Scholars will begin April 27, 2016 (tentative) in the U.S. with introductory course work and dialogue with leading breast cancer experts on April 28-29, 2016. Scholars will travel to the city of their host institution and attend clinical training from May 2 – June 1, 2016.

Scholars will attend the ASCO Annual Meeting, June 3-7, 2016 in Chicago. Following ASCO, Scholars will return to their home countries.
