Education & Training

Education is one of the core missions of Yale Cancer Center, along with research and clinical care. Our vision is that Yale Cancer Center be a center of excellence in training the next generation of leaders in basic, translational, clinical, and population science cancer research. Our Education Committee, chaired by Harriet Kluger, MD, and co-led by David Stern, PhD is focused on bolstering and coordinating the training activities across the spectrum of disciplines.

Through the committee’s leadership there is substantial institutional commitment, both in funding and in other support to provide the resources and mentorship needed to our trainees and junior faculty. The Committee regularly reviews ongoing classes and other training vehicles in the various training programs on a continual basis to ensure our programs are meeting the needs of our trainees. At all levels, Yale Cancer Center trainees are integrated into current programmatic activities via their associations with one of our seven research programs.
