Global Oncology and International Programs

The University of Miami’s Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center is making efforts toward alleviating inequalities in cancer control in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs) through the Global Oncology and International Programs initiative.


  • Inbound and outbound educational opportunities
  • Awarding internal research grants, creation of research post doc positions, and bridging international research collaborators with UM
  • Improving the International patient experience and providing guidance to partners to develop their own services considering resource restraints
All Global Oncology and International efforts include ongoing initiatives with partners in LMICs that focus on 3 main areas:
  1. Education
  2. Research
  3. Patient Care
