The Global Oncology Committee is a committee of the Canadian Association of Radiation Oncology (CARO), the national association for Radiation Oncologists in Canada.

Our guiding principles are to:

  1. Connect with, educate and learn from residents, physicians, therapists, physicists, nurses and researchers in the field of Radiation Oncology in low and middle-income countries.
  2. Build a centralized web-based knowledge platform for CARO members interested in oncology in the developing world.
  3. Develop a collective voice for CARO to communicate with other international agencies in support of cancer control in low and middle-income countries.

The 2018-2019 CARO Global Oncology Committee is led by: 

  • Co-head: Dr. Jean-Marc Bourque (The Ottawa Hospital)
  • Co-head: Dr. Danielle Rodin (Princess Margaret Cancer Centre)
  • Resident representative: Dr. Jessica Chan (The Ottawa Hospital/University of Ottawa)
