Education Achievements

Collaboration with Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC)

One programmatic educational achievement lies in the tight collaboration of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) with Hunter College in the development of courses that speak to the research needs of the IGERT students. Last year (Spring semester, 2011) the first year student, then an IGERT associate, took a course at MSKCC that was specifically designed for the IGERT program.

This course is a Basic Sciences Lecture in Radiochemistry and Nuclear Medicine given mostly to residents at MSKCC. The course instructors modified the course to include pedagogical exercises for the IGERT associate above the course material for residents.

This course starts in the summer when the residents come in to MSKCC and extends for one year. It is given at 7:30 AM once a week. This year we are thinking of offering it to our first year students- after they complete their first year, in July, 2012 so that they can experience the entire sequence with the residents.
