Grants and Awards

GOC/Bruce Galloway Trainee Awards

Ovarian Cancer Canada, in partnership with The Society of Gynecologic Oncology of Canada (GOC), established the Bruce Galloway Trainee Awards for obstetrics and gynecology residents who choose gynecologic oncology as an elective. The goal of the program is to increase the number of ob-gyn residents who select this specialty and remain in Canada to practice.

A monetary award of $1,500 is designed to cover travel and housing to work with a gynecologic oncology team during a one month elective. Ovarian Cancer Canada and GOC will also consider additional costs incurred with respect to provincial licensing requirements. Guidelines and the selection process are found in the application form.

To apply, contact Chisomo Nguluwe by email at cnguluwe@g-o-c.org or by phone at 800-561-2416 ext. 276 or 613-730-4192 ext. 276.
