FDA Commissioner's Fellowship Program

Modified: April 14, 2016

FDA invites outstanding health care professionals, scientists, and engineers to apply to its two-year Commissioner’s Fellowship Program, where they will receive regulatory science training and the chance to conduct cutting-edge research on targeted scientific, policy, or regulatory issues under the mentorship of an FDA senior scientist.

The Fellowship Program combines rigorous, graduate-level coursework with the development of a regulatory science research project. Under the guidance of an FDA senior scientist Preceptor committed to mentoring, Fellows will explore a specific aspect of FDA regulatory science. This experience can be in a biology, physics, or engineering lab, in a clinical review team, in biostatistics, informatics, epidemiology, risk analysis, or in other aspects of FDA science. Fellows also have the opportunity to contribute to FDA's review of sponsor's applications for new products or to other regulatory reviews. They work with FDA scientists to develop better research and evaluation tools and approaches, ranging from assays for chemical or pathogen detection to methods to assess clinical or health care data.

The program is geared towards people who have already completed a doctoral level degree, but applicants with a Bachelor's degree in an engineering discipline are eligible to apply. Applications are due May 12 at 5pm.
