Founded in 1898, and affiliated with what is now NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital since 1927, Weill Cornell Medical College is among the top-ranked clinical and medical research centers in the country. It is divided into 24 basic science and patient care departments that focus on the sciences underlying clinical medicine and/or encompass the study, treatment and prevention of human diseases. In addition to offering degrees in medicine, Weill Cornell also has Ph.D. programs in biomedical research and education at the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences, and a joint MD-Ph.D. program with neighboring Sloan-Kettering Institute and The Rockefeller University. 

Meyer Cancer Center Summer Internship Program (MCC SIP)

The Sandra and Edward Meyer Cancer Center is offering summer internship opportunities to high school and undergraduate students interested in exploring exciting cancer research questions. Students will immerse themselves in the fundamental principles of scientific investigation, get hands-on experience in laboratory techniques, or perform dry-lab research under the mentorship of our basic science and clinical research faculty. Our goal is to educate and inspire students at an early-stage to pursue future careers in cancer research.

Graduate Programs

The Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences, a joint program between the Sloan-Kettering Institute and Weill Cornell Medical College, offers a unique and diverse learning environment. It offers seven Ph.D. and four MS programs, taught and mentored by a cadre of more than 250 faculty members committed to training the next generation of basic and translational investigators. The program provides opportunities for collaboration with Meyer Cancer Center researchers, enabling students to contribute to advances in the treatment of human disease.

Medical Students

Weill Cornell Medical College offers a comprehensive medical education that integrates foundational sciences and clinical activities. Its curriculum is centered on three themes -- The Scientific Basis of Medicine, Patient Care, and Physicianship – and features opportunities for mentored research in basic sciences, clinical and translational medicine, and international health. These include collaborations with Meyer Cancer Center faculty as part of extramural and intramural programs, such as the Areas of Concentration experiential learning module. 

Clinical Fellowship Program

Weill Cornell offers a number of oncology-related clinical training programs in conjunction with NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. Housed within individual departments and specialties, the fellowships provide access to advanced, in-depth clinical training and the opportunity to collaborate with internationally recognized clinicians and researchers who recognize the value of education for advancing their academic fields. Fellows will be equipped with the clinical, research, laboratory and academic skills requisite to becoming fully qualified practitioners, consultants and academic leaders.

Postdoctoral Fellows

Weill Cornell has more than 300 postdoctoral associates and fellows, who are a vital part of its biomedical research community. Those interested in pursuing postdoctoral training at Weill Cornell are advised to contact individual faculty members in whose research they are aligned. A list of research opportunities at Meyer Cancer Center can be found here . Weill Cornell also offers support and career development resources to postdoctoral fellows via the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs.

Postdoctoral Training

The Molecular and Translational Oncology Research (MTOR) Training Program at Weill Cornell Medicine offers 1-2 years training grants to postdoctoral fellows, who have a solid background in basic science and are interested in pursuing a career in translational cancer research.
