Great News! FDA Offers A New Training Fellowship Program
FDA is launching a new two-year fellowship program in the fall of 2008 to provide an opportunity for health professionals and other scientists to receive training and experience at one of the world's most prestigious regulatory agencies.
Under the guidance of a FDA senior scientist preceptor committed to mentoring, fellows will explore a specific aspect of FDA regulatory science. This is a hands-on experience in which the fellow will identify and study a topic in FDA regulatory science. The experience can be in a biology, physics or engineering lab, in a clinical review team, in biostatistics, informatics, epidemiology, risk analysis or other aspects of FDA science.
The coursework is designed to provide an in-depth review of the sciences behind regulatory review, encompassing the activities of the FDA across foods, drugs, devices and cosmetics. Coursework during the two years includes public policy, FDA law, leadership skills, epidemiology, clinical trials, statistics as well as devices and radiological health.
Stipends are extremely competitive plus health insurance, a generous housing allowance is provided ($10,000 housing stipend per year), and travel funds are available to attend scientific meetings.
Individuals must have a United States citizenship, be a non-citizen national of the U.S., or have been lawfully admitted to the U.S. for permanent residence. Doctoral level degrees (M.D., D.V.M., Pharm.D., Ph.D. or equivalent) are necessary for the health sciences and basic sciences. Engineers should have completed a B.S. degree.
