Mazumdar Shaw International Clinical Fellowship Fund

The people of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSK) are united by a singular mission: ending cancer for life. Specialised care teams provide personalised, compassionate, expert care to patients of all ages. Informed by basic research done at the Sloan Kettering Institute, scientists across MSK collaborate to conduct innovative translational and clinical research that is driving a revolution in the understanding of cancer as a disease and improving the ability to prevent, diagnose, and treat it. MSK is dedicated to training the next generation of scientists and clinicians, who go on to pursue their mission at MSK and around the globe. One of the world’s most respected comprehensive centres devoted exclusively to cancer, MSK has been recognized as one of the top two cancer hospitals in the country by the U.S. News & World Report, for more than 30 years.

The Mazumdar Shaw International Clinical Fellowship provides outstanding professional development opportunities for medical doctors from India or the UK. The funds are entirely used to support two fellows per year. The International Clinical Fellowship pledge was made in 2019, and will continue to be used through 2029.

Thank you, again, Mrs Mazumdar-Shaw, for establishing the International Clinical Fellowship. It has not only given me a great opportunity to learn and practice at one of the best academic medical centres in the world, but it has made a huge impact on how I approach each case and also my research. For me, pathology is all about a sense of discovery, the sense of making the unknown known, and recommending the appropriate diagnosis in case of misperception. I am forever grateful for this experience.
