Cancer Education at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre recently wrapped up the first Summer Student Clinician Scientist Program.
With so many diverse career paths in healthcare, the program aims to facilitate access to career sampling opportunities for students from the Toronto District School Board.
For the program's pilot year, the cancer centre welcomed nine students from Bloor Collegiate and Newtonbrook Secondary School. Students supported teams in areas such as MRI-guided radiotherapy for liver cancer, patient-reported outcomes research, and laboratory studies in cervical cancer biology.
Unlike many summer opportunities for teens in high school, the clinician scientist program is a paid job rather than a volunteer position. Funded by The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation, students are given a Metro Pass and earn minimum wage to ensure the need for employment isn't a barrier to getting valuable on-site experience.
