McGill Program in Cancer Prevention


Created in June 2002, the division of Cancer Prevention of the Department of Oncology, Faculty of Medicine, is a multidisciplinary program that encompasses clinical, research and academic work in cancer prevention at the University. In close collaboration with the programs in Cancer Epidemiology and Cancer Genetics, the program focuses on the integration of research and clinical interests related to cancer prevention at McGill, and fosters further academic work in the field.

For the public, clinical services and educational materials about cancer prevention, and information about upcoming public lectures and programs are located at our clinical centre, which is based at the Jewish General Hospital. Patients should link directly to the Cancer Prevention Centre for more information.

The clinical services are currently offered at McGill's Jewish General Hospital site. We hope to offer similar services at the MUHC site in the future.
