NIAID Basic and Clinical Training Program
NIAID offers 3-year fellowships in ACGME-approved training programs in infectious diseases and allergy/immunology. These programs aim to develop clinical and basic research skills in physicians who are already well grounded in clinical medicine. Qualified individuals may apply for student loan repayment, currently repaying up to $35,000 per year of eligible student debt. The Laboratory Research Pathway is devoted solely to laboratory research. This pathway is open to both postdoctoral researchers and physicians, and consists of a minimum of 2 to 3 years of laboratory work in any one of NIAID's intramural laboratories.
