2008 Application Catalog
To be considered for the CPFP, you must meet the following eligibility requirements:
Doctoral Degree. You must possess an M.D., Ph.D., J.D., or other doctoral degree in a related discipline (e.g., epidemiology, biostatistics, ethics, philosophy, or the biomedical, nutritional, public health, social, or behavioral sciences). Foreign education must be comparable to that received in the United States.
Applicants currently enrolled in accredited doctoral degree programs that have not yet fulfilled all degree requirements will be considered for entry into the program, with the understanding that all requirements will be completed before the start of the CPFP. Assurance to this effect must be supplied in writing by the chair of the dissertation committee (e.g., Ph.D. candidates) or the dean of the school (e.g., M.D. candidates).
Citizenship. You must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States at the time of application (September 1). The I-551 stamp in a passport is acceptable; “Employment Authorization” documents are not acceptable.
Applicants applying through the Ireland-Northern Ireland-NCI Cancer Consortium should refer to the Program Description/New Initiatives section for guidelines.
