Expanding Cancer Prevention Education to National and International Audiences: The National Cancer Institute's Principles and Practice of Cancer Prevention and Control Annual Summer Course.

Faupel-Badger JM, van Bemmel DM, Wiest JS, Nelson DE


The Summer Curriculum in Cancer Prevention has been sponsored by the National Cancer Institute's Cancer Prevention Fellowship Program for over two decades. This curriculum includes a 4-week course entitled "Principles and Practice of Cancer Prevention and Control." The ultimate goal of this course is to present the most current cancer prevention research to a diverse workforce of researchers and practitioners eager to address the current challenges in this field. The course covers the current status of cancer prevention research and practice, ranging from epidemiology and clinical practice, and from basic to behavioral science research. It is comprised of lectures grouped into nine modules representing broad and specific topics relevant to cancer prevention. Course participants come from a broad cross-section of career stages, professions, and research interests, and are from across the USA and other countries. Over time and in response to feedback from participants, the course has developed to meet the needs and expectations of this diverse audience, and may serve as a model for those interested in cancer prevention education and training in other countries.
