Curt Claude Bodkyn’s Story

I have a keen interest in improving the outcome for children with cancer in Trinidad and Tobago and the Caribbean region. Following my undergraduate training in medicine, I trained for 10 years in the UK specializing in Paediatrics with a subspecialty in Paediatric Oncology. 

During my training in the UK, I had the good fortune to work at institutions such as St. George’s Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital, and the Royal Marsden Hospital in London for the first five years.  The later five years being spent at the Royal Victoria Infirmary and the Newcastle General Hospital in the North of England.  On completion of training, I returned to Trinidad and Tobago and established the Paediatric oncology service at the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex in 2001. This service has significantly improved the outcome for children with cancer in Trinidad and Tobago and is one of the best in the English-speaking Caribbean.  Outcomes continue to improve by championing international collaborations such as the SickKids Caribbean Initiative for Children with Cancer and Blood Disorders and American Society of Hematology (ASH), Children’s International Consortium on Acute Leukaemia (C-ICAL).
