The mission of the National Cancer Institute is to provide high-quality oncological health care, training and research in Mexico; and to lead the generation of strategies to control cancer and reduce its impact as a public health problem in Mexico. The National Cancer Institute (INCAN in Spanish) of Mexico was created by presidential decree on November 25, 1946. INCAN is part of a group of tertiary care hospitals depending on the Federal Ministry of Health that combines teaching, research and health care provision in its field of specialty. INCAN is an internationally recognized institution that collaborates with institutions such as the American Cancer Society (ASCO), the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), the MD Anderson Cancer Center and the National Cancer Institute of the US National Institutes of Health.
INCAN coordinates 24 State Cancer Centers across Mexico. To accomplish its goals INCAN coordinates the development of the National Program for Cancer Control which encompasses five key topics:
1. Cancer Prevention and Early Detection
2. Oncological guidelines for the 10 most common cancers in Mexico
3. Palliative Care
4. Medical Infrastructure and Health Services Administration
5. Tobacco Control
Interested students could participate in a range of specific research projects included within the key 5 topic areas either at INCAN in Mexico City or in some of its Centers at the State level.
Spanish is recommended, but not required.
