Yale Cancer Center opportunity available in summer of 2023 for URiM students

Yale Cancer Center (YCC) is offering a Diversity Enhancement Program in Oncology to foster underrepresented in medicine (URiM) trainees’ interest in careers in hematology/medical oncology (heme/onc) and to build a pipeline to bring URiM candidates to the Yale Fellowship Program and Advanced T32 Training Program for Physician-Scientists.

The Diversity Enhancement Program in Oncology supports two URiM medical students or residents to spend an 8-week oncology rotation at Yale in summer 2023, covering expenses including living, transportation, and research for up to $5,000 per person.

Career Advising Student Advisory Board – Tip of the Month

 You’re almost done with the Patient Care Phase! Ideally, you have narrowed down your career choices to one to two specialties with a secondary specialty until fourth year – if one of the specialties is not family medicine (FM), pediatrics (Peds), or internal medicine (IM).  Meet with  your specialty career advisor to review your initial competitiveness, MS4 electives, and, for a few specialties,away rotation planning, including strategies and programs that might be a good fit for you. If you want to do an away rotation, get your CV updated, ask for a letter of recommendation, and have an idea of which programs you want to apply to. Try to start working on your Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO) application now and not during Step 2 Dedicated so you don’t have to take time away from board studying!
