Since their creation, the French Comprehensive Cancer Centers have ensured a teaching mission, along with their health care and research missions focused on cancer.



Training in the French Comprehensive Cancer Centers (FCCC)

Oncology training is an essential strategic orientation of the Medical Scientific Project of the UNICANCER Group shared by all the Centers.

The 20 FCCC of the Group:

  • are involved in the initial university training of health professionals, in collaboration with university and health establishments;
  • offer on-going expert training to medical and paramedical professionals, both within and outside of the Centers.

The themes developed as part of on-going expert training are from the FCCC organisation model founded on multidisciplinary practice, global patient management and a research-patient care continuum, generalised by the Cancer Plan since 2003:

  • sites treated in the Centers;
  • new techniques that can be used;
  • support care and palliative care;
  • onco-psychological care for patients and their loved ones;
  • good practices: diagnosis consultation, health and/or therapeutic education.
