MD, PharmD, or PhD candidates are invited to now apply for positions in a unique joint fellowship program offered by Thomas Jefferson University and The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in experimental therapeutics which focuses on molecular, translational, and individualized medicine across the developmental continuum.

The program incorporates didactic, clinical, and research components that can lead to an MS in Human Investigation. Beyond the laboratory, fellows gain experience in designing and conducting clinical trials, biopharmaceutical industry drug development, regulatory sciences at the FDA, and pharmacometrics.
