CMF Educational Funds

CMF Education and Training Fund 

The CMF Education and Training Fund was created in 2011 to expand the educational mandate of the University Hospital Network’s (UHN) Mesothelioma Program. The purpose of the fund is to support a variety of educational and training initiatives promoting the exchange of ideas and knowledge about mesothelioma between physicians at UHN and other centres in Canada and abroad. The types of initiatives funded include, but are not limited to, fellowships and other learning opportunities.

Other educational funding

Physicians and centres in Canada can contact the CMF to apply for a grant to support their educational endeavors to improve the diagnosis and treatment of Canadian patients with mesothelioma. We consider the following types of activities for funding: seminars or education days on mesothelioma for primary health care workers, more in-depth educational activities for health care providers already working in the area of mesothelioma, or events to promote the exchange of information and expertise between centres or physicians in Canada who might be involved in caring for patients with mesothelioma.
