Resources for Graduate Students

Cancer represents a number of complex diseases that require innovative, multifaceted approaches towards eradication. The Carver College of Medicine and University of Iowa foster a multidisciplinary approach by bringing together nationally- and internationally-recognized researchers and clinicians in a collaborative environment to advance cancer prevention, detection, and treatment.

Trainees have the opportunity to specialize and diversify their focus to improve cancer care under the tutelage of expert cancer researchers, clinicians, and educators in a team-based environment.
