Head & Neck Cancer Disparities Career Development Program
A core mission of the program is to recruit trainees with a variety of backgrounds and life experiences.
The Head and Neck Cancer Disparities Career Development Program was established 2020 to stimulate interest, mentor and train future leaders in head and neck disparities research. Participation is open to medical students, residents, and visiting scholars. Trainees are directly involved in the conduct of research studies, and receive education in research methods through didactic sessions and research meetings. A core mission of the program is to recruit trainees with a variety of backgrounds and life experiences. Stanford University is strongly committed to recruiting women, individuals from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, as well as individuals with disabilities. Such individuals bring distinct experiences and perspectives on health-related issues faced by the varied community of individuals with head and neck cancer. Please contact Dr. Megwalu if interested in the program.
