Residency Training

The Oncology Research Residency is a unique opportunity for the successful applicant to work in an integrative health setting for oncology patients, and actively participate on patient care, and research.  Residency positions are for a one to two year term.


Clinical expertise in oncology is developed through mentorship with the on-site practitioners, and the oncology resident is expected to participate in direct consultative clinical care, parenteral therapy support and training. In addition to developing clinical skills, the oncology research resident will assist in performing synthesis research, and be involved in clinical trial research methodology and conduct.

While the OICC resident may participate in CCNM’s curriculum for residents, they will also be engaged in oncology-focused continuing education development and learning, both at the OICC and elsewhere.

This opportunity is ideal for a naturopathic medicine post graduate (licensed naturopathic doctor) who has a specific interest in cancer. They must be parenteral trained by the start of the residency, and demonstrate interest in research, ideally with a publication history. The candidate should be confident, collaborative and personable.

Voices of Support

 

“Educating and training our next generation of cancer care professionals, as well as the general public, in the principles of integrative oncology is essential to improving cancer care in Canada. The OICC provides much needed and trusted information and resources that are grounded in evidence and empower individuals to take charge of their health and the environment that surrounds them.”
