A Fulbright Specialist in Poland
One of the greatest rewards in cancer education is working with colleagues from around the world. This manuscript reports on the development and conduct of a cancer research training program in Wroclaw, Poland, supported by the Fulbright Commission. The precipitating need for this program was the desire and lack of opportunity for medical trainees to develop skills necessary to conduct cancer education research. A 2-week program was developed consisting of didactic, Socratic, and individual/group consultations. Support from the Fulbright Commission was essential to the success of this program. Information will be presented in this paper on the completion of the funding application as well as lessons learned in the development and implementation of this program.
