St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is committed to the education and training of the next generation of research scientists. St. Jude trainees are able to learn from clinical and basic science investigators who work in close proximity and interact regularly to translate scientific discoveries into improved therapies for children.

St. Jude provides opportunities for selected graduate and undergraduate students in both foreign and domestic educational programs to study with faculty mentors at different levels – undergraduate, master and doctoral. Opportunities include internships, thesis research, and course work in fulfillment of a dissertation/PhD degree. Academic credit is optional.

The Pediatric Oncology Education (POE) program at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is funded by the National Institutes of Health / National Cancer Institute. The POE program offers a unique opportunity for students preparing for careers in the biomedical sciences, medicine, nursing, pharmacy, psychology, or public health to gain biomedical and oncology research experience. It provides a short-term training experience (internship) in either laboratory research or clinical research. A primary goal of the POE program is to encourage students to pursue a career in cancer research, either as a laboratory-based scientist or a physician scientist. Thus, qualified students with an interest in cancer research are particularly encouraged to apply. For more information about the Pediatric Oncology Education program, see http://www.stjude.org/poe
