NCCAM announces new research fellowship program

Bethesda, MDThe National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), announces the creation of a new NCCAM Directors Fellowship in Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) Research.

The new fellowship program will add measurably to NCCAMs ongoing training activities by sponsoring outstanding research fellows to work in its Division of Intramural Research (DIR), based at the NIH in Bethesda, MD. A selection committee comprising leaders from the CAM and scientific communities will choose the recipient of the fellowship from a highly competitive international pool of applicants. Applicants must possess an M.D., D.O., Ph.D., D.C., D.M.D., N.D., D.V.M., or other equivalent degree, and have a record of excellence and promise in clinical and/or laboratory-based researchpreferably related to CAM.

This prestigious new fellowship is made possible by a generous donation from the Prince of Wales Foundation to which we are grateful for its vision and support, saidStephen E. Straus, M.D.,NCCAM Director. The fellowship constitutes an important new mechanism by which NCCAM can recruit and train the next generation of leaders in CAM research,said Straus.

Although this new fellowship presents us with an outstanding opportunity, NCCAM continues to recruit and support research fellows to the DIR through traditional NIH and non-NIH funding mechanisms, said Marc R. Blackman, M.D., Scientific Director of the DIR at NCCAM.

The primary goal of the training program is to prepare the fellow for a career as an independent CAM investigator. The fellowship includes full salary, benefits, professional travel, and research support for 2 to 3 years. The fellow will undertake clinical, translational, and/or laboratory research in NCCAMs DIR. The DIR provides state-of-the-art research facilities as well as access to the extensive clinical research infrastructure of the NIH Clinical Center.
