Awards, Grants & Internship Opportunities
The Food and Drug Administration’s Professional Affairs and Stakeholder Engagement Staff (PASES) is offering an exclusive four-week elective rotation for American Medical Association (AMA) medical student, resident and fellowship trainee members. During the rotation, one candidate will work closely with all members of the PASES team to provide a focal point for advocacy and to enhance two-way communication and collaboration with healthcare professionals, patients, patient groups, and others on issues concerning drug development, drug review, and drug safety. The selected intern will work one-on-one with the PASE director to research best practices, synthesize data, and develop strategies to better engage with stakeholders in a manner that will improve medication use and increase awareness of FDA regulatory activities related to drug development.
The intern will work at FDA headquarters in Silver Spring, MD. A stipend will be provided to help cover living expenses based on level of training ($2,000 for medical students). Dates of rotation flexible and must be completed by Dec 31st, 2015. This opportunity is now closed. Please check back in January 2016.
