Online Education Platform

On October 20 2016, The African Organization for Research and Training in Cancer (AORTIC) officially launched AORTIC’s virtual education and training platform as part of AORTIC’s leading efforts dedicated to building capacity for cancer control in Africa.

The launching took place in Abuja Nigeria during an AORTIC regional conference organized in partnership with Nigeria’s Ministry of Health.

The platform is designed to facilitate and support training initiatives in oncology for health care workers, helping build human capacity for cancer control in Africa for the 21st century and beyond. Courses with certificates offered on the platform will highly complement other cancer education and training efforts by AORTIC and partners. AORTIC will offer certificate courses via this platform but also provide links to partner platforms with complementary online education and training content. The Virtual Platform is open to all AORTIC members.

A needs assessment in terms of courses on offer is currently underway.  Courses on offer will be published soon.
