Pediatric Oncology Branch Medical Student Rotations

Select 4th-year medical students may be approved for a 4-week elective rotation at the Pediatric Oncology Branch. This rotation emphasizes the important connection between research and patient care in pediatric oncology. The student is supervised directly by the Branch’s attending physician and clinical fellows. Students attend daily in-patient and out-patient rounds and multiple weekly Branch conferences, and are expected to research relevant topics and present a 30-minute talk near the end of their rotation.

  • This is a highly specialized rotation; only medical students with experience and/or interest in pediatric oncology will be considered and possibly selected, on an occasional basis.
  • Applicants are selected based on a review of their credentials and cover letter, which should outline their goals for this rotation.
  • Only one student is allowed per session.  Availability may be limited due to programmatic constraints.
