We have vibrant education programs at the undergraduate (including clinical oncology teaching at the Windsor Campus) and postgraduate levels for clinical and basic science trainees. We are closely linked to the London Regional Cancer Program/London Health Sciences Centre and share a vision of integrated cancer care, research and education that aligns with the Schulich mission of outstanding education with a research intensive environment.
