St. Jude provides opportunities for selected graduate students in both foreign and domestic educational programs to study with faculty mentors at both the master and doctoral levels. Academic credit is optional.
Scientific inquiry and translational research along with related support areas lend themselves extremely well to this pedagogical model of instruction. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital along with the Academic Programs Office is committed to developing and supporting Experiential Learning Internships that are clearly defined as learning strategies, have an emphasis on defined experience, reflection, and application stages and contain some form of review or assessment by an appropriately credentialed advisor.
For more information regarding a specific program, an experiential learning internship, or for setting up an affiliation agreement with a college or university, contact: APO.Predoctoral.Programs@stjude.org
International Research Scholars are graduate students from institutions outside of the United States who perform their thesis research at St. Jude under the guidance of a St. Jude faculty mentor. They typically receive a stipend from St. Jude that is approved annually by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital administration.
The PhD is awarded by the home institution. Scholars have already been formally accepted into an accredited graduate program and must adhere to the regulations and requirements of that program. The Graduate Education Oversight Committee (GEOC) provides supervision for acceptance, policies, and procedures for the International Research Scholars.
Since 2002, students have traveled to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital from the University of Paris – Diderot as a part of their master’s level curriculum. Students are paired with faculty and receive training in a lab over the course of five months, while working on their individual projects. They receive academic credit, a research stipend, and internship experience.
The Paris program at St. Jude is directed by Dr. Martine Roussel, Endowed Chair of Molecular Oncology, Co-Leader, Cancer Genetics, Biochemistry and Cell Biology Program in the St. Jude Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Member, Department of Tumor Cell Biology.
Graduate students may pursue a PhD at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital through the Integrated Program in Biomedical Sciences based at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center. (Apply to UTHSC Integrated Biomedical Sciences Program.) Students perform their course work at The University of Tennessee Health Science Center, and may undertake laboratory rotations and doctoral research at St. Jude, The University of Tennessee Health Science Center, or the Memphis Veterans Affairs Medical Center. The degree is awarded by the University of Tennessee Health Science Center. (Download our brochure.)
