Visiting Speakers Program in Oncology


The Visiting Speakers Program in Oncology (VSPO) is a joint program between McGill University and the Université de Montréal, which sponsors internationally-renowned oncology specialists to come share their expertise with the medical community of Montreal. Invited speakers present at several McGill and Université de Montréal teaching hospitals and often at Hôpital Charles-LeMoyne (teaching hospital of Université de Sherbrooke) thus facilitating attendance by busy healthcare professionals.

To Suggest a Speaker

The duration of a speaker tour is one to three days depending on the number and schedule of the talks. A typical speaker tour includes MUHC-Glen, Jewish General Hospital and CHUM as well as one or more of the following hospitals: Hôpital Maisonneuve-Rosemont, Hôpital du Sacré Coeur, Hôpital Charles-Le Moyne. Videoconferencing to other hospitals in Quebec is available upon request. One of the lectures is live on the web and the webcast is subsequently uploaded on the McGill Continuing Professional Development website. For each speaker tour, an oncologist at each site is designated as the host and introduces the speaker.
