VF Introduces Vasculitis Fellowship Program

June 5, 2012

Applications for the Vasculitis Foundation Fellowship are being accepted through October 1, 2012. The $100,000 award, the first for the Vasculitis Foundation, will begin in July 2013.

The Vasculitis Foundation Fellowship provides the opportunity for one- or two- year tracks designed to support the training of physician scientists who wish to gain clinical expertise in vasculitis and who may also wish to pursue an investigational career in this field. The fellowship will be conducted through Vasculitis Centers where there has been a track record of training individuals in vasculitis.

“The Vasculitis Foundation is committed to creating greater awareness and interest in vasculitis,” said Joyce Kullman, executive director of the Foundation. “We hope that our new Fellowship Program will encourage medical professionals to pursue careers in patient care and research linked to vasculitis.”

In order to apply, an applicant must be committed to providing care to vasculitis patients within an academic Medical Center; hold a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) (or equivalent) degree and have completed training in Internal Medicine and an Internal Medicine subspecialty.

All applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. EST on October 1, 2012.
