Educating Tomorrow's Physicians & Researchers
The IU Simon Cancer Center offers a rich and challenging learning environment for medical and medical science students and allied health professionals at every level.
All of its physicians and scientific researchers hold faculty appointments in the Indiana University Schools of Medicine, Nursing, Dentistry and Allied Health, and the Purdue University School of Science. They teach nearly 2,000 students, residents and fellows each year, all while conducting their own research. The IU Simon Cancer Center faculty also sponsor several post-graduate educational programs each year for cancer specialists, including the Cancer Biology Training Program.
The Training in Research for Behavioral Oncology and Cancer Control (TRBOCC) Program research fellowship is designed to provide promising novice scientists with the opportunity to be mentored in research intensive multidisciplinary settings toward the goal of developing careers in behavioral oncology. This training program is supported by a grant from the National Cancer Institute.
Educational opportunities are also available through the Summer Research Program for high school and undergraduate students with an interest in pursuing a biomedical career.
