Rheumatology Fellowship Program Director
National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, Bethesda, Maryland

The NIAMS Intramural Research Program seeks a board-certified/eligible Rheumatologist with experience and outstanding skills in medical education and clinical research for a position as a Staff Clinician/Fellowship Program Director. This position would offer a combination of support for a clinical or translational research program in collaboration with NIH rheumatology faculty members, as well as a leadership position directing the adult rheumatology ACGME-certified fellowship training program. Salary will be commensurate with experience and fully supported by the NIH Intramural Research Program.

Program Details:
The Clinical Research Program of the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases conducts state-of-the art clinical care and research at the NIH Clinical Center in Bethesda, Maryland as part of its mission of discovery in the pathogenesis and treatment of rheumatic diseases. The Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program is an important part of this mission, aiming to train the next generation of clinician-scientists in rheumatology. NIH fellows acquire clinical competence and expertise in the field of rheumatology, promoting and providing patient care, while also performing basic, translational and clinical research to advance the field in an extended research project, which can be supported beyond the duration of time of the clinical fellowship.

The Program Director would oversee the adult Rheumatology Fellowship Training Program, which enrolls three fellows per year, as well as associated clinics where fellowship training takes place. The Program Director would also be expected to pursue a clinical research agenda in collaboration with existing NIAMS principal investigators. In addition, s/he is responsible for devising a dynamic educational program for the fellows drawing on the resources of NIAMS and other Institutes in the NIH Intramural Research Program and collaborating institutions. The Program Director would also be the Chief of the Rheumatology Clinical Service, responsible for coordinating internal and external consultations on diseases and clinical studies. Resources will be provided to recruit and supervise the trainees in the program, including a full-time program administrator.

Eligibility:
Board certification/eligibility in rheumatology is required, and significant experience in clinical research and graduate medical education is preferred, including program supervisory experience. Candidates must have an M.D. or D.O. degree.

How to Apply:
The application period for this position will begin on March 22, 2013. For additional information, contact Richard Siegel, M.D., Ph.D., Clinical Director, NIAMS, at rsiegel@nih.gov.
