Simon Kramer Summer Externship
Summer Externship in Radiation Oncology
The Department of Radiation Oncology at Thomas Jefferson University & Hospitals in Philadelphia, PA, is offering the annual Simon Kramer Society Externship in Radiation Oncology. This externship was established for the purpose of exposing medical students to the discipline of radiation oncology and provides up to two students each year with the opportunity to spend six weeks in our Department working on a research project and participating in clinical and educational activities. You must be a first or second year student in good standing in an accredited U.S. Medical School in order to be considered for this externship. The start and end dates will be determined with the students after the selection process, but must occur between June and August.
Open to first & second year medical school students.
We are able to provide each extern with a $750 stipend which will be paid within two weeks of their arrival at Jefferson. We are not able to provide any assistance with travel, housing, meals, or other expenses. There may be an opportunity for housing on the Jefferson campus during the externship (which we can help you explore) but this is also at the student’s expense.
How to Apply
When applying, students should indicate whether they wish to pursue a research project in medical physics, molecular radiation biology, or clinical radiation oncology.
