These placements are treated differently than the other volunteer assignments here at Fox Chase. Our research faculty will review and choose applicants to interview whose letters of introduction, CV or resume, and skills fit their requirements.

This is a unique volunteer assignment and it is very competitive.  Unfortunately, we are not able to place every applicant. We will process your application once an assignment has been selected.
