MD Anderson Cancer Center is committed to encouraging good health and staying true to our mission to end cancer.  If you are applying for a GME fellowship or residency program starting on or after July 1, 2016, please be advised that MD Anderson will have instituted a tobacco-free hiring process as part of its efforts to achieve these goals.  If you are offered an appointment as a GME Fellow or Resident at MD Anderson Cancer Center on or after July 1, 2016, you will be subject to a Pre-Employment Drug Screen for tobacco compounds in compliance with applicable state laws.   If you do not pass the urine drug screening which includes testing for tobacco compounds, you CANNOT be appointed at MD Anderson.  Should you fail to meet this contingency, MD Anderson will withdraw your offer of appointment for the academic year.  You may reapply for the following academic year, but there are no guarantees that you will be offered a position as many of our programs are already filled for several years out.
