This two-year educational program will prepare cancer care clinicians to develop and implement a comprehensive distress screening program in their practice environments.

Those accepted into the 2018 Distress Screening Program will participate in a condensed ONE YEAR program, rather than the traditional two year program. CLICK HERE for more details!
