  • VCCC Alliance
  • University of Melbourne

Content from the online Master of Cancer Sciences, jointly facilitated by the University of Melbourne and the VCCC Alliance, has beaten out the likes of Microsoft and Harvard Business School to claim gold in the international 2022 Telly Awards.

The winning piece, ‘Stereotactic Radiotherapy’, is an educational film produced for the Master of Cancer Sciences, delivered by Peter Mac’s Associate Professor David Kok, co-convenor of the course, and co-written with Dr Sathana Dushyanthen, The University of Melbourne. It was awarded Gold in the Education and Training category.

The Telly Awards, which honour excellence in video and television across all screens, have been running for 43 years and receive thousands of entries from across the globe each year.

“To win this award is obviously extremely pleasing personally,” said Associate Professor Kok.

“And it is also a great acknowledgement of the fantastic efforts that have been put in by many to ensure the quality of the entire Master of Cancer Sciences and University of Melbourne/VCCC Alliance teaching suite.”
