Education providing education and training to students and investigators at various stages of their cancer research careers
The mission of the UF Health Cancer Center’s Cancer Training and Education Program (CTEP), led by Dr. Dietmar Siemann, is to serve as the university-wide center for cancer education and workforce enhancement. The CTEP provides education and training opportunities across the education continuum, from pre-collegiate to faculty, and includes programs that emphasize training of underrepresented minorities.
