Liver Cancer Research Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital

The Liver Cancer Research Fellowship at The Mount Sinai Hospital provides a track for foreign candidates who have not completed the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). As visiting scholars, these fellows will pursue an independent research project formulated in conjunction with a faculty mentor in Mount Sinai’s Liver Cancer Program. They will observe in the clinic, but may not engage in direct patient care.

Suitable research projects may be clinical, laboratory-based, or translational in nature, and require Institutional Review Board approval. For each research fellow, a mentoring plan will be established in which the faculty mentor, Liver Cancer Research Director, and program researchers commits to regular interactions with the fellow to teach, advise, and guide them in their research and career development.

These fellows will also attend and present at weekly Liver Cancer lab meetings and works-in-progress research meetings. They are expected to present at the monthly Liver Cancer Program research meeting, and to attend the Annual Mount Sinai Liver Cancer meeting. 

Finally, our fellows are expected to submit their research findings to appropriate national or international meetings such as the International Liver Cancer Association (ILCA), the American Association for the Study of Liver Disease (AASLD), or the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), and publish their research in peer-reviewed journals.
