Please do contact us if you you would like to share resources, research or evaluation relating to education and training.

Fundamentals of Cancer Genomics E-learning Resource

The Royal College of Radiologists working with the Association of Cancer Physicians have developed a new free resource, containing 4 modules, on the Fundamentals of Cancer Genomics that may be of interest to our members and is open to everyone to access. The RCR and ACP will be further developing this resource in Spring 2023 by launching tumour site specific modules.

Who is this for?

Healthcare professionals involved in the care of patients with cancer, including but not limited to:

  • Clinical oncologists
  • Medical oncologists
  • Pharmacists
  • Pathologists
  • Nurses working in cancer care or cancer research
  • Cancer researchers (Clinical academics or research scientists)
  • Clinicians working in primary care with a specialist interest in cancer medicine

These interactive, bite-size modules are the first in what will be a series of genomics learning resources with focus on various tumour types. Look out for further details to be released in the coming months via the RCR’s channels.
