Call for Applications: 2014 American Academy of Family Physicians Vaccine Science Fellowship
Application deadline is March 17, 2014.
The American Academy of Family Physicians has two vaccine science fellowship positions available for family physicians. The selected fellows will work with mentors to become more knowledgeable about vaccine science and policy.
Selected applicants will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and practical “hands on” experience through participation in meetings of leading experts in public health and immunizations, federal and state vaccine policy groups, and vaccine manufacturers.
Applicant must be an active member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, in practice or teaching, and out of residency and fellowship.
Applicant must be a U.S. citizen.
Each applicant must devote approximately 10% of full time employment (FTE) for one year.
Applicant must commit to travel time for appropriate meetings.
Because funding support for the AAFP Vaccine Science Fellowships is provided by Merck & Co., Inc., the selected applicants may be disclosed by Merck and posted on a public website by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services as covered recipients under the Physician Payments Sunshine Act, codified at 42 CFR Parts 402 and 403. The funder will have no input into or control over selection of fellows or content of the fellowships.
The overall purpose of the program is to develop a cadre of family physicians interested in and knowledgeable about vaccines issues. This cadre of family physician vaccine experts will assist the AAFP in providing effective input into the deliberations and decisions of federal and state public health agencies that set vaccine policies as well as educating practicing family physicians about advances in vaccines. This fellowship will address the interface between public health and the family physician community to make vaccine information effective and practical to the membership of the AAFP. The proposed outcome will be improved use of immunizations by the U.S. public and the highest level possible of vaccine safety and public acceptance of vaccines.
Who Should Apply
This program is designed to be of particular assistance to those who are early in their post graduate education careers. See other eligibility requirements above.
The fellowship is for one year, from April 1, 2014 to March 31, 2015. The applicant's institution and/or department chair must be willing to commit that sufficient time will be allowed to complete the fellowship.
