Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) is hosting an online virtual event to provide senior undergraduate and recent college graduates from historically underrepresented and underserved groups with advice about the different aspects of applying for biomedical PhD programs.
This online event will be divided into 3 hour sessions over 3 days in mid-September (9/13- 9/15). Participants will receive insights and advice on all aspects of biomedical graduate school from selecting the right programs, the application and interview process, fellowship advice, to guidance on how to make the right choice. All sessions will be led by MSK faculty and staff and selected participants will have a chance to receive feedback during a mock interview with an MSK faculty member.
Leaders of MSK PhD programs will present an overview of their respective programs including the Gerstner Sloan Kettering Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Tri- Institutional PhD Program in Chemical Biology, Tri-Institutional PhD Computational Biology and Medicine Program and the Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medical Sciences.
