CCTG 2023-2024 New Investigator Cancer Trials Practicum

The purpose of the CCTG New Investigator Cancer Trials Practicum is to deliver a training program that includes practical trial experience at cancer sites throughout Canada over a one-year period. This unique program and the first of its kind in Canada. It enables the best and brightest new Canadian oncology researchers to acquire training and experience in cancer clinical trial conduct. At the culmination of training, researchers will receive the Cancer Trials Investigator Certificate as proof of their expertise.

Eligible Applicants

Ideally, applicants will have completed their oncology (medical, radiation and surgical) or hematology specialist training and be within two years of their first faculty position (fellows transitioning into faculty at that site will be eligible). The new investigator must be a qualified, registered investigator with the expectation of enrollment of patients from their practice. They will have an experienced investigator mentor at the site and the site must be participating in, or agree to activate, one of the selected CCTG clinical trials. The new investigator may serve as local Qualified Investigator with the mentor. The centre representative must confirm site support for the applicant. Non-hematologists or oncologists and those beyond 2 years of their first faculty appointment who are interested in participating in this program may also apply after preliminary discussion with Dr. Bradbury.
