About

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 global oncology.
  3. Develop a collective voice for CARO to communicate with other international agencies in support of global cancer control.
