Pediatric Oncology Education (POE) Program

Agency: St. Jude Children
Due Date: February 1, 2017
GPA: 3.85
Stipend: 4,000.00
Description: The program offers a unique opportunity for pre-doctoral students preparing for careers in the biomedical sciences, medicine, and pharmacy to gain biomedical and oncology research experience. Students participate in basic or clinical oncology research, research and clinical conferences, and a core lecture series designed specifically for them. All participants make a PowerPoint presentation on their research project and submit a report on their research project written in the style of a journal in which their faculty mentor publishes. A primary goal of the POE program is to encourage students to pursue a career in cancer research. Thus, we are particularly interested in highly qualified students with a serious career interest in cancer research, either as a clinical scientist or laboratory-based research scientist. Prior research experience is required for all applicants. Acceptable start dates for 2016 program participants will be May 9, May 16, May 23, or May 31, 2016. If you could not start on one of these dates (May 9, May 16, May 23, or May 31, 2016), you are not eligible for our 2016 program. The duration will be 10-11 weeks
