The AIMBE Scholars Program enables distinguished post doctorates in the medical and biomedical engineering fields to serve as expert advisors to policymakers. In its launch-year, Scholars will come to Washington, DC and spend a year working in the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) along side the most influential decision makers in Washington. Scholars will inform public policy through their knowledge of the latest cutting-edge research and technological innovations and receive training about the federal policy process (including budget, regulatory, and grant processes) and build relationships with key government stakeholders.
