With state-of-the-art laboratories as classrooms and renowned scientists as teachers and mentors, City of Hope equips the next generation of leaders with the skills to transform the future of medicine.
Creativity – the kind that challenges students to think bigger, investigate more deeply and explore with greater intensity – lies at the heart of our interdisciplinary clinical and academic programs, from our highly regarded Irell & Manella Graduate School of Biological Sciences to our sought-after post-doctoral fellowships.
Taught to address fundamental questions in life sciences and biomedicine, students are free to pursue their own areas of interest in collaborative, intellectually stimulating environments across our campus.
As one of only a select few National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the country, City of Hope integrates all aspects of cancer research, treatment and education, which means that therapies worked on by students in the laboratory can have applications in the clinic.
Both an invaluable training ground and a career springboard, our education programs offer students the opportunity to learn in a place that has been responsible for some of the important advances in science over the past century.
City of Hope has a long-standing commitment to continuing medical education (CME), sharing advances in cancer research and treatment with the health-care community through CME courses such as conferences, symposia and other on and off campus CME opportunities for medical professionals. CME events are vital for physicians seeking board certification and for maintenance of certification, or MOC, ensuring that they are kept up to date on the latest treatment modalities and delivering the highest standard of patient care.
Recognized worldwide for its innovative approaches to advancing science, City of Hope offers a number of hands-on fellowships and residencies in an array of areas.
The office of Graduate Medical Education (GME) and Clinical Training (CT) offers a variety of resources to assist residents, fellows, faculty and staff in meeting their clinical training goals and objectives.
Just as City of Hope offers continuing medical education for physicians, we also offer an innovative series of educational programs for other health professionals such as nurses, social workers, psychologists, chaplains, radiation therapists, pharmacists and cancer researchers. Participants in continuing education programs accumulate Continuing Education Unit, or (CEU), credits, while our other programs award certificates at successful completion of the curricula.
This website is dedicated to prospective and current fellows and their mentors. The goal of the Postdoctoral Training Office (PTO) is to ensure that the postdoctoral experience at City of Hope is rewarding and meaningful to all participants. We encourage you to explore our institution and the various programs and resources devoted to postdoctoral fellows.
Through seminars, continuing medical education and conferences, we provide educational opportunities for community physicians and other health care professionals.
