  • Experiential Opportunities

Ideas for Experiential Opportunities:

  • Speaking on behalf of a cancer-related not for profit organization
  • Volunteering to be on a Committee such as the BHCRI Training Committee
  • In the case of Postdoctoral Fellows, volunteering to be part of a Scientific Review Committee
  • Volunteering to raise funds for a cancer-related not for profit i.e. Molly Appeal, Terry Fox Foundation, Relay for Life, etc.
  • Any cancer-related volunteer work
  • Volunteering through the IWK with children in the cancer ward. This involves an application through the IWK to be accepted for the program.

This is not intended to take up a lot of time but is a way to give back to the organizations that support CRTP. For trainees with children, participating in a fundraising activity like the Terry Fox Run would be a great way to help without causing time away from family.
