Fellowships for Oncologists

Fellowships in Health Services Research and Cancer Epidemiology for Oncologists

Cancer Care and Epidemiology at Queen's Cancer Research Institute (QCRI) invites applications for Fellowships in Health Services Research in Cancer Epidemiology from individuals who have completed their clinical training in cancer-related specialty, and wish to develop research skills and experience in health services research, or cancer epidemiology.

Cancer Care and Epidemiology at QCRI is a group of six career scientists and six clinician-scientists, with expertise in cancer epidemiology, health economics, outcome research, and clinical decision-making, as well as surgical oncology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, and palliative care. Fellows will be expected to undertake a substantive research project under the joint supervision of a career scientist and a clinician-scientist.

Fellows may be accepted for one or two years.

Two-year Fellows will have the opportunity to register for the Degree of Master of Public Administration in the School of Policy Studies, or in the MSc Program in Epidemiology at Queen's.

All Fellows will be expected to participate in the Terry Fox Foundation Training Program in Transdisciplinary Cancer Research in partnership with CIHR, which includes graduate level courses in Public Policy Cancer Epidemiology and Experimental Diagnostic and Therapeutics.

While the emphasis of the program is on acquisition of research skills, Fellows may have the opportunity for a limited amount of clinical work to enable them to maintain their clinical expertise during the Research Fellowship. Funding is available internally for this position through our Terry Fox Foundation Training Program in Transdisciplinary Cancer Research in partnership with CIHR, but all Fellows will also be expected to apply for external fellowship support.
