Duration 2 Years



The Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America Foundation, Inc. recognizes the important need for early identification of medical/dental students interested in pharmacology - clinical pharmacology. If the important discipline of pharmacology, and this includes clinical pharmacology, is to have an essential influx of clinically-trained personnel in future years, it is vital that there be some means of promoting and identifying career interests in these areas.

Although pharmacology - clinical pharmacology, like any other highly-specialized field of medicine, is not likely to attract large numbers of students, provision must be made now to insure that pharmacology will recruit, with some regularity, an appropriate number of students to careers in the study of drugs and therapeutics. The medically trained pharmacologist has always given this discipline a desirable balance of interaction between laboratory and clinical sciences. Applications, however good, which do not meet the aims of the program will be disapproved.


A candidate must be enrolled in a United States medical/dental school and have finished at least one year of the school curriculum. Priority consideration will be given to those candidates who project strong commitments to careers in the field of clinical pharmacology. The applicant must be sponsored by the pharmacology or clinical pharmacology program in which the investigative project is to be undertaken. The sponsoring unit must have a demonstrated commitment to training in the fields of pharmacology or clinical pharmacology.

As clinical pharmacology is a part of the broad field of pharmacology, the specific research project conducted during the tenure of the fellowship may be in any area of pharmacology.

Applications must be submitted by an accredited U.S. school, and all applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.



    This funding opportunity requires applicants to hold U.S. Citizenship.
