Pathways to Careers in Cancer Care & Research Undergraduate Fellowship
The University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center is pleased to offer a 2-week introductory fellowship – Pathways to careers in Cancer Care & Research. The Rogel Cancer Center is internationally recognized for its exceptional cancer research across the continuum from basic sciences to translational and clinical research to cancer control and population science.
The pathways fellowship program includes seminars aimed at learning about cancer and different career pathways in cancer care and research. Our goal is to ensure that the next generation of cancer care providers, regardless of race, gender, or socioeconomic status, can gain exposure to what it is like at a Cancer Center Matrix organization, like Rogel Cancer Center. The program will include talks from our physicians, scientists, current trainees, and will culminate with a community project where fellows can apply what they learn in their home town or college community. Fellows will be paid via a stipend of $500 to participate in the virtual program starting June 19 and ending June 30.
*This program will take place virtually with the option to attend an end of program symposium in person.
