FDA Veterinarian Newsletter 2002 Volume XVI, No VI

The FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine provides training opportunities for undergraduate, graduate and professional students. These training opportunites seek to promote personal development and professional skills reflective of the students' field of study. The ultimate goal is to stimulate an interest in pursuing careers significant to the Center.

Program Goals and Objectives

The "Windows to Research and Regulatory Science Student Intern Program" allows the student an educational opportunity, expands career options, and nurtures professionalism and individualized development. The CVM Research/Review Scientist benefits from hosting an intern by completion of a special research project and promoting consideration of future employment at CVM.

Student Intern Research Plan and Evaluation Plan

Each participating CVM Research/Review Scientist is asked to provide a Student Intern Project that includes a plan that states the objectives and a critical evaluation plan to be conducted at four-week intervals. It is recommended that the CVM Research/Review Scientist or a designee meet with the student on a weekly basis to best provide the mid-term and final evaluations.

Program Collaboration

This program is conducted in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health, Minority Access to Research Careers (MARC) Program, the National Science Foundation, and Alliances for Minority Participation (AMP). The Program is administrated by the CVM Equal Employment Opportunity Office, Bessie Cook, EEO Manager and Dr. Woodrow Knight, Scientific Advisor.
