Graduate Research Program
Fox Chase Cancer Center is not a degree-granting institution. However, every year graduate students carry out their thesis research under the supervision of Fox Chase faculty who hold adjunct faculty appointments at local academic institutions or participate in the Fox Chase-Russian State Medical University Sister Institute Program. Generally, these students have completed the major course work requirements for a doctoral degree and are engaged in full-time research at the Center.
Graduate students have access to all available live and archived programing including training in science communication, leadership, teaching/mentorship, and career path exploration as well as community building events. These opportunities are described in more detail on the Postdoctoral Research Training pages.
