CALL FOR IDEOM FELLOWSHIP
The International Dermatology Outcome Measures (IDEOM) is now accepting fellowship applications for the 2022 year. The fellowship is for a one to two year term. The fellow is expected to be actively involved in clinical research and educational activities across multiple IDEOM workgroups. The fellow is expected to have good medical writing skills and will participate in writing protocol and consent forms and in writing papers. Additionally, the fellow will be active in supporting the activities of IDEOM annual meetings.
Through this fellowship, IDEOM can engage fellows in carrying out the mission to validate measures throughout dermatology. IDEOM strives for the establishment of patient-centric outcomes to enhance the research and treatment of dermatological conditions.
The body of evidence on outcomes measures for dermatological diseases varies widely and lacks agreement on standardized measures. This absence of evidence-based, consensus-driven, and widely accepted outcomes measures may impede patients from receiving access to the most effective and appropriate treatments available. Without such outcomes measures, researchers and health care providers lack critical benchmarks for making treatment recommendations and evaluating patient progress, and payers lack the information needed to determine the efficacy of various treatments, information that is key to shaping payment policies. Given the higher prices associated with many dermatology treatments and a misperception that many conditions are “cosmetic,” the absence of clear outcomes measures could result in payers providing minimal to no coverage for various therapies, curtailing patient access to care.
Fellows appointed to this position will work with IDEOM stakeholders.
Position open to:
- 3rd to 5th year medical student or
- MD or MD/PhD degree and completion of at least 1 year PGY1 residency(by June 30) or
- Fellows may also have already completed a dermatology, medicine or pediatrics residency or rheumatology fellowship
Please submit an updated CV and 3 references to email@example.com
