Oncopadi Digital Health and Cancer Research Fellowship 2021 for Lagos-based health care researchers (Funded)

Oncopadi Technologies is accepting applications for the 2021 Oncopadi Digital Health and Cancer Research Fellowship. The fellowship will support health care researchers to build digital health expertise into their careers and better harness the potential of new digital technologies and practices.

The Research and Development unit of Oncopadi Technologies is accelerating collaborative digital health research in the oncology ecosystem and conducting collaborative health care innovation studies in Nigeria. These studies aim to generate insights that would promote value-based oncology care in Nigeria.

The Fellowship is designed to educate and train individuals with a passion for healthcare innovation in critical issues and processes related to the development and commercialisation of digital technologies. This will be supported by a programme of workshops to stimulate fellows to confidently lead digital health transformations for their health care institutions.

  • The fellowship program will provide fellows with the time to collaborate with clinicians, technologists, entrepreneurs, scientists and patients.
