Education and Training

In the area of population-based study, Asian childhood solid tumours are under-represented in current research. Major international studies in paediatric solid tumours are largely based on Caucasian and African-American populations. Directed research into the epidemiology, clinical outcomes, tumour biology, and socio-economic impact of paediatric cancer in Asian children is essential. A better understanding of these aspects will allow better applicability to our local and regional populations.

To complement the Comprehensive Childhood Brain & Solid Tumour Programme, an Education, Exchange and Collaboration track serves to enhance inter-institutional collaboration, reach out to the broader population in Southeast Asia and integrate training and education into our healthcare and research activities.

  1. Exchange fellowships. Medical professionals are welcome to apply as exchange fellows in a paediatric oncology-related discipline. The fellowship is a one year program aimed at training and equipping the exchange fellow with the skills required to enhance the paediatric oncology service back in their home country, where they will return after their fellowship. While the fellowship can be tailored to the needs of the candidate depending on previous training and licensing, the emphasis will be on the clinical management of children with pediatric brain and solid tumours.

  3. Visiting experts and lectureships in brain and solid tumors. In conjunction with the annual St Jude VIVA forum, international experts in the fields of paediatric brain and solid tumours visit and interact with paediatric oncology faculty here in Singapore. Through international collaboration we seek to advance the care of and research of paediatric brain and solid tumours in Singapore and the region.
