The intent of this award is to encourage specialized training early in a physician’s career and to prepare candidates for careers in academic medicine. Training must take place in a CF Foundation-accredited care center and must encompass diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, comprehensive care and CF-related research. Applicants must be eligible for Board certification in pediatrics or internal medicine by the time the fellowship begins.

Awards are $47,600 (first year) and $49,250 (second year) for stipend. Also, fellowships are available for additional basic and/or clinical research training in the third, fourth, and fifth years to qualified applicants. Recipients are expected to be subspecialty Board eligible at the completion of the program.

Applicants and sponsors must submit a proposal of the research studies to be undertaken and other specialized training that will be offered during this third year. Up to $68,250 may be awarded: $58,250 for stipend and $10,000 for research costs (indirect costs not allowed).

Recipients who do not enter a career of academic medicine will be subject to payback provisions. U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status is required.

Please review the appropriate Policies and Guidelines for complete submission information: 1st Year, 2nd Year, 3rd year, 4th year, or 5th year.
