Researcher Shadowing Program

The Carolina Cancer Association and the Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center are working together to develop meaningful shadowing opportunities for aspiring researchers and oncologists. 

How it works

  • Check out our pool of graduate student mentors. 

  • Choose one or two students who peak your interest. 

  • Fill out a short application through this link. 

  • Chosen applicants will be notified one week after the application deadline. 

  • You will be provided with the contact info of a graduate student — it will be your responsibility to contact them and arrange a time for you both to meet. Don’t hesitate to ask us for advice on how best to go about this! 

  • You’ll be required to attend a preparatory meeting at the Lineberger Center to review safety precautions and general information BEFORE you shadow a graduate student. Further details about these meetings will be released when new applications are released. 

  • After you shadow, you’ll be asked to fill out a feedback form. 

    • We’re always looking for ways to improve, so feel free to let us know what you think!
