Washington DC Metro Area
The U.S. FDA Office of Surveillance and Epidemiology, Division of Pharmacovigilance (DPV), is recruiting drug safety clinical physician to serve at our campus in Silver Spring, MD. The successful candidate is a member of a multidisciplinary safety team of highly-skilled professionals responsible for the surveillance of adverse events associated with drugs and biologics that are regulated by the FDA. DPV evaluates and interprets information from adverse drug event reports in the FDA Adverse Event Reporting System (FAERS) and other data sources. This evaluation requires utilization of the incumbent’s medical and scientific judgement in determining the adequacy of clinical documentation, the severity of the adverse event, and the possible causal relationship between specific therapeutic agents and the adverse event.
The successful applicant is a board certified or board eligible Doctor of Medicine or Doctor of Osteopathy graduate from a school in the United States or Canada approved by a recognized accrediting body in the year of the applicant's graduation, with specialty training in dermatology. [A Doctor of Medicine or equivalent degree from a foreign medical school that provided education and medical knowledge substantially equivalent to accredited schools in the United States may be demonstrated by permanent certification by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) (or a fifth pathway certificate for Americans who completed premedical education in the United States and graduate education in a foreign country.)]
At FDA you can make a difference in protecting the health of the American people. FDA serves as the consumer watchdog of America’s healthcare system by making sure that safe and effective medications are available to improve the health of consumers.
