Visiting Speakers Program in Oncology


Français ici

The Visiting Speakers Program in Oncology (VSPO), based at the Gerald Bronfman Center, is a joint program between McGill University and the Université de Montréal which sponsors internationally-renowned oncology specialists to come to share their expertise with the medical community of Montréal.

speakerIn a mutual effort to expand and enhance this academic program, we planned to have thirteen invited Professors over the 2014-2015 period, who will give two to three lectures at the various hospitals and institutes affiliated with McGill University and the Université de Montréal. The guest speakers will be proposed in an effort to cover as many different fields related to oncology as possible. Therefore a varied array of tumour sites and specialty of interest will be privileged. In this regard, medical as well as non-medical professional subjects will be proposed. Potential candidates are subject to review by the medical executive committee of VSPO. Further analyses of educative needs will be solicited by subject specialists from McGill and Montreal University in order to identify a host for the invited professor and to guide the executive committee on the conference objectives.
