Training and education are mainstays of Memorial Sloan Kettering’s mission. As early as 1927, John D. Rockefeller, Jr.— who, along with his father, founded the hospital that became Memorial Sloan Kettering — established the first fellowship programs to train doctors, scientists, and nurses. Our commitment to training the next generation of cancer scientists remains strong as ever, and we offer several exciting summer opportunities for high school and college students interested in biomedical sciences.
For high school students interested in biomedical research, we offer a eight-week summer internship program set in one of the busy laboratories of our Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program. Students learn how to conduct independent research and are invited to participate in a number of extracurricular events so they can truly immerse themselves in the world of translational medicine and research.
College students can take advantage of our:
- Chemical Biology Summer Program (ChBSP)
- Computational Biology Summer Program (CBSP)
- Engineering Summer Program (ESP)
- HOPP Research Technician Pipeline Program
- Molecular Imaging Summer Program (MISP)
- Quantitative Sciences Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (QSURE)
- Mechanistic Biology Summer Program (MBSP)
- Genomics Experience for Master’s Students (GEMS)
High School students can take advantage of:
- HOPP Science Enrichment Program
- Office of Health Equity’s Summer Exposure Program
