ClinPRAT Training Program Open

The NIH Clinical Pharmacology Research Associate Training (ClinPRAT) Program is a 3-year postdoctoral research fellowship sponsored by the Clinical Center and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences. It emphasizes the application of laboratory pharmacology, biostatistics, pharmacokinetics and chemistry to the study of drug action in humans.

Postdoctoral training positions are available starting July 1, 2003 and in subsequent years. Candidates must have an M.D. and, in general, have completed 3 years of residency training, and be board-eligible in a primary medical specialty. Candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the United States.

Candidates' qualifications are evaluated by the clinical pharmacology steering committee. Selection is highly competitive and preference will be given to applicants with outstanding potential. Most successful candidates either have had Ph.D. degrees in addition to their M.D. degree or substantial prior research experience. The stipend is determined by the candidate's educational and professional experience. For more information visit or call Donna Shields at 435-6618.

Dr. Elizabeth S. Lowe, the first ClinPRAT fellow to complete the 3-year research training program, receives her certificate from Dr. Arthur J. Atkinson, Jr., senior advisor in clinical pharmacology at the Clinical Center and ClinPRAT program director.
