Call for Applications: TDR Clinical Research & Development Fellowships

Researchers from low and middle income countries (LMICs) are invited to apply for the fourth round of the WHO/TDR Career Development Fellowship (CDF) on clinical research & development (clinical R&D). Successful candidates will be placed with leading product development institutions, including pharmaceutical companies that are participating in the fellowship programme (“host institutions”). The goal is to develop human resources to promote high quality clinical R&D in LMICs. It is expected that qualified professionals will enhance LMICs’ product development capacity on diagnostics, drugs and vaccines for infectious diseases that disproportionately affect poor and marginalized populations.
The host institutions will train individuals in situ in order to develop specialized skills not readily taught in academic centres, including R&D project management, regulatory requirements and good health research practices. On returning to their home institutions, the fellows are expected to become an important resource for institutional capacity development to undertake and manage clinical research in accordance with international regulatory requirements and standards.

All applications must be received by 7th October 2012 at the latest.

Testing Treatments interactive

Testing Treatments interactive is an online version of the book, Testing Treatments. This is a very valuable resource to learn about the importance of fair tests for new treatments and interventions, and why these are not always done. This is essential reading for anyone planning to get involved in clinical research.

Consortium of Universities fo Global Health (CUGH) offers a bi - weekly feature

Consortium of Universities fo Global Health (CUGH) offers a bi - weekly feature: a case - series from rural Uganda called “Reasoning without Resources”.The target audience is clinicians practicing in low resource settings, medicine and family medicine residents, and senior medical students with an interest in clinical global health.

The series is assumes that medical textboo ks, written for those who can access and afford them, have limited relevance to making a diagnosis in most of the world’s hospitals. This case-series addresses that reality by developing clinical skills as the fundamental "diagnostic test" available to clinicians, and sound clinical reasoning as the clinician’s principle resource. Through its Question and Answer format, the series focuses as much on pedagogical process as on biomedical content. In taking on these broad basic challenges, it hopes to inform medical education and cost-effective medical practice in modern medical settings as well.
