NEMROCK Center: Program Objectives

  •  To provide a robust educational experience for clinical training in clinical oncology (Medical/Hematology Oncology & Radiation Oncology), with comprehensive understanding of oncologic principles, treatment basics, radiation techniques, dosimetry, physics and radiobiology.

• To provide a clinical learning environment that promotes expertise in oncology, with exposure to treatment for the full spectrum of disease sites,  the pathology of each disease site, radiographic findings and the surgical and medical options

• To foster a multidisciplinary approach to cancer care through participation in disease site. oriented conferences that combine highly specialized medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, pathologists and radiologists

• To introduce and promote clinical research through retrospective and prospective evaluations of patient outcomes.



NEMROCK Center Vision


In recognition of the increasing complexity of cancer therapy, particularly with respect to the interface between laboratory discovery and clinical care, the fellowship training has been organized to provide experience in the multidisciplinary care of patients, supplemented by an intensive program of didactic lectures, inter-disciplinary tumor boards, research seminars, and formal coursework. We recognize that both cost and quality measure the value of the health care which government, patients and community are targeting.


NEMROCK Center Mission


• The mission of the educational program is to train leaders in clinical oncology at National, Regional and African levels.

• The program is centered on satisfying each of the core competencies: patient care, knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, research and high quality practice in the field of oncology.

• Through rigorous hands-on teaching, formal didactic instruction, and mentored research, the program aims to provide clinical oncology trainees with the necessary foundation and confidence for a career of lifelong learning and evidence-based patient care.

• CCT program is in accord with the departmental, institutional, and nationwide health care missions to practice the cancer patient care treatment paradigm.

• To innovate and lead the development and improvement of multidisciplinary models in cancer patient care.




Most of modern treatment protocols for the majority of cancers entail a combined chemo. radiotherapy regimens. Thus it is useful that both medical and radiation oncologist be aware of the role of the other treatment modalities. Furthermore, many of developing countries in Africa and Middle  East have only one facility of combined specialties, therefore The NEMROCK CCT program will encounter their needs.
