Abstract

The medical and health-related educational system in Egypt has advantages and limitations. Medical education includes a unique system of three-year community-based public health training, but better planning and collaboration among schools could notably increase new physicians' knowledge of cancer detection and prevention. Nurses and pharmacists exert great influence in the provision of health care. Yet, their training includes neither cancer education nor information about prevention. The medical and health-related educational system in Egypt has many limitations, but it has the structure and inherent ability to achieve cancer education goals.
