CHLA/USC Summer Oncology Fellowship Program
The Summer Oncology Research Fellowship Program for students
in health science fields, which has been sponsored by CHLA and
USC for more than 30 years, is once again being offered for the
Summer of 2005. Fellowships have traditionally gone to students
from universities and medical schools throughout the United States.
Prior candidates have been exceptional students; many are now
in academic positions, with some involved in full-time cancer
This program is intended to provide the highest quality experience
for first-year medical school students pursuing
interests in oncology research. While the program has traditionally
been designed for those students who have completed their first
year of medical school, highly qualified undergraduates majoring
in the health science fields have been considered. Faculty mentors
are located both at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles and at the
USC Keck School of Medicine.
The students are paid a weekly stipend of $225
for a minimum of six weeks or maximum of ten weeks. Reimbursement
for travel and housing are offered on a case by case basis for
those students from outside the greater Los Angeles area. While
participating in the program, students will be expected to attend
a lecture series on aspects of pediatric oncology at CHLA designed
specifically for them and will be encouraged to attend other scientific
lectures in their area of research.
The application deadline for Summer 2005 is February
28, 2007. For more information, please contact Rosa

The New York Academy of Medicine invites applications for the David E. Rogers
Fellowship Program from first-year medical and dental students for support of projects
executed during the summer between the first and second years of medical or dental school.

policy analysis, activities linking biomedicine, the social infrastructure and human need, or
community activities. Half the fellowships awarded are dedicated to projects focused on HIV/AIDS
prevention or care. Special consideration will be given to projects carried out within
New York City.
