Rotations at City of Hope

City of Hope offers medical students, residents and fellows from affiliated California institutions a two- to four-week credited rotation at the main campus in Duarte, California. We offer rotations in many subspecialties taught by world-renowned oncologists. Rotators will receive an experience that is unique to City of Hope.

City of Hope Graduate Medical Education (GME) accepts requests from LCME and osteopathic medical schools, as well as the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited programs located in California. Residents and fellows must hold a valid California medical license or PTL.

Medical schools located within the United States can view and apply to our offerings on the AAMC Visiting Students Learning Opportunities website. Through VSLO, medical and public health students can connect with institutions offering short-term elective opportunities to enhance their medical education.

  • All required paperwork must be submitted to the department or division in which the training will take place at least 60 days in advance of the rotation start date. If rotator application packets are not submitted within the 60-day requirement, the requested start day may be delayed. Approval is at the discretion of the department/division, and rotation slots are limited.
  • The GME office does not process rotation requests from institutions outside of the United States.
  • The GME office does not manage requests for noncredit observerships. Please visit City of Hope's main page for these types of requests.
  • The GME office prohibits discrimination based on race, color, national origin, age, disability, religion or sex. City of Hope strongly supports and values the uniqueness of all individuals and promotes a work environment where diversity is embraced.
