​The Summer Student Clinician Scientist Program facilitates access to career opportunities for students from Toronto District School Board (TDSB) schools.

Program Summary

The Summer Student Clinician Scientist Program is a local outreach program at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. The program is designed to teach TDSB students about the diverse nature of careers in science and health care. The program accepted its first cohort of students in July 2017 from TDSB schools identified by the UHN-TDSB Partners office. The program has since accepted two additional cohorts of 10 students for the 2018 and 2019 cohorts.

Please note the Summer Student Clinician Scientist Program will not be able to run in 2020 due to the cancellation of in-person summer student programs at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
