Why Choose City of Hope for Graduate and Post-Graduate Study?
With state-of-the-art laboratories as classrooms and renowned scientists as teachers and mentors, City of Hope equips the next generation of leaders with the skills to transform the future of medicine.
Creativity – the kind that challenges students to think bigger, investigate deeper and explore with greater intensity – lies at the heart of our interdisciplinary clinical and academic programs, from our highly-regarded Irell & Manella Graduate School of Biological Sciences to our sought-after post-doctoral fellowships.
Taught to address fundamental questions in life sciences and biomedicine, students are free to pursue their own areas of interest in collaborative, intellectually stimulating environments across our campus.
As one of only a select few National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Centers in the country, City of Hope integrates all aspects of cancer research, treatment and education, which means that therapies worked on by students in the laboratory can have applications in the clinic.
Both an invaluable training ground and a career springboard, our education programs offer students the opportunity to learn in a place that has been responsible for some of the important advances in science over the past century.
