International Fellowship

The visiting fellowship program provides an opportunity for internationally trained junior oncologists to gain exposure to the cutting edge clinical research taking place at START Madrid.   


International fellows will have the opportunity to observe, train and receive mentorship from key thought leaders in the field of oncology phase I clinical trials during their tenure at START Madrid.  They will be able to acquire their knowledge and expertise within a setting where they can translate data from the bench to the bedside, while concurrently collaborating in:

  • Clinical Trial design 
  • New targeted therapies
  • Pharmacology
  • Pharmacokinetics
  • Pharmacodynamics
  • Key regulatory issues surrounding new drug development
  • Manuscript preparation

This is also a very exciting opportunity for START Madrid as it allows us to mentor young oncologists, who can take their knowledge and expertise back to their respective countries, ultimately strengthening the global effort to accelerate the development of new agents.  Through imparting our knowledge to international trainees, we feel that we will be to enrich the knowledge of the international drug development community, and also facilitate collaborations with international investigators.
