Enhance Your CV: Bench-to-Bedside Retreat Seeks Planning Committee Members

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 spearhead 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!

Possible retreat components: 

  • Invited keynote speaker

  • Peer networking

  • Use of an innovative video abstract submission process, whereby each trainee submits a 90-second video (elevator pitch) about their project; short trainee talks to be selected from the video abstracts

  • Selected presenters and award-winning video abstracts to be highlighted on the Case CCC website and social media

We need your insight on the planning committee to ensure a successful bench-to-bedside retreat! OCTER’s goal is to support you in the design, development and implementation of the 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 Damian.Junk@case.edu or 216-368-3803.
