The NIH Residency Electives Program (REP) is open to residents and clinical fellows enrolled in ACGME-accredited training programs throughout the United States. Participants have the opportunity to have direct experience in the care of patients enrolled in investigational protocols in the disciplines listed below. Participants in these elective rotations also have exposure to the design, conduct, and management of investigational protocols, including clinical trials.
Depending on the elective rotation of interest, certain eligibility requirements must be met. When reading descriptions of available electives, please consider that every rotation is unique. However, all residents are required to have their salary and benefits continued, and their malpractice/liability coverage provided by their home/sponsoring institution for the duration of the elective rotation. The REP does not offer either a housing or travel subsidy for selected participants.
Applications MUST be submitted a minimum of 3 months in advance of the proposed elective rotation start date. To apply, please select 'Apply to REP' under Program-Specific Elements to submit an application. For more information about specific rotations, please visit the links below:
