Resources: The Fellows Committee has sponsored career-development seminars, forums on the tenure-track policy, speakers for the NIH Wednesday Afternoon Lectures, and an all-day scientific symposium on the Molecular Mechanisms of Disease. Among its biggest achievements is the establishment of the NIH Fellows Award for Research Excellence, a merit-based travel award program for clinical and postdoctoral fellows. It has also worked with the Office of Education to develop a fellows handbook and to coordinate the annual NIH Clinical Teacher Award.
