Help organize a cancer-focused bench-to-bedside retreat by serving on the planning committee

The Office of Cancer Training, Education and Research (OCTER) of the Case Comprehensive Cancer Center (Case CCC) is excited to announce a new opportunity to design, develop and implement a cancer-focused bench-to-bedside retreat. OCTER is looking for graduate and medical students, post-docs, residents and fellows with an interest in cancer research to join the retreat planning committee and help lead this effort.

Benefits of planning committee membership:

  • Enhance your CV
  • Develop your leadership and teamwork skills
  • Make new connections within the Case CCC
  • Utilize and build project development, management and implementation skills in a way that can benefit other trainees
  • Have more input into the design of your training experience

OCTER envisions a 3-hour mini-retreat in 2019 to integrate basic and clinical Case CCC trainees to bridge the knowledge gap about cancer research and clinical care. The proposed mini-retreat format is open for your ideas. We need your insight on the planning committee to ensure a successful bench-to-bedside retreat!

Volunteer for the retreat planning committee today by contacting Damian Junk, Assistant Director of Cancer Training, Education, and Research at the Case CCC, at or 216-368-3803.
