Application Period Open for the 2010 BNC Fellowship

The Bravewell Collaborative, with major funding provided by the Charles Evans Foundation, the National Institute for Nursing Research (NINR), and the NIH Clinical Center (BNC) have come together to sponsor the joint BNC Fellowship for research in integrative medicine.

This postdoctoral fellowship provides a unique opportunity on the NIH campus in Bethesda, Maryland and combines the academic environment of a university with the breadth and depth of the intramural research program at the NIH.

The full-time, two-year program includes participation in clinical and research experiences with a clinical integrative medicine focus and encourages interdisciplinary collaboration to optimize health and healing for individuals, families and communities. Fellows will attend the Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the Center for Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona, as well as participate in special interest conferences with clinicians and researchers. In addition, under the mentorship of an NINR Intramural Program investigator and an NIH Clinical Center investigator, each fellow will conduct a biobehavioral research study at the NIH campus in Bethesda on a topic relevant to integrative medicine.  The BNC Fellowship prepares graduates to become innovative and creative leaders in the scientific community.

The BNC Fellowship was made possible by a grant from the Charles Evans Foundation.
