Title: ACR REF/Amgen/Pfizer Rheumatology Fellowship Training Award
Sponsor: American College of Rheumatology Research and Education Foundation
Deadline: August 1, 2011
Eligibility: Ph.D./M.D./Other Professional
Abstract: This award is granted to support one year of clinical training, which is not restricted to the first year of training. Applicants for the ACR REF/Amgen/Pfizer Rheumatology Fellowship Training Award may also be eligible for the ACR REF Paula DeMerieux Rheumatology Fellowship Training Award. In order to qualify, the trainee must be a member of an underrepresented minority within rheumatology, or a woman.
Applicants may also apply for Fellowship Training Pilot awards, designed to specifically address three objectives, listed below in priority order:
1) Creation of a new fellow position, preferably one that was previously ACGME-accredited but was unfilled due to lack of sufficient fellow salary funding;
2) Increasing the number of underrepresented minority trainees; and/or
3) Providing a slot committed to trainees with a high likelihood of pursuing an academic rheumatology career.
