Meaningful & Mission-Driven
Physicians generally contribute to the overall health and wellbeing of their communities in very meaningful ways. This is of course valued and respected but working with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) offers physicians a way to contribute to the overall public good on a far greater scale. If you are interested in expanding your reach to include a global stage, then there are no greater opportunities than those at the FDA.
Medical officers at FDA perform duties that:
Ensure all human drugs manufactured for interstate sale are safe and effective with truthful and informative product labeling
Ensure the safety, potency, purity and effectiveness of vaccines, blood products, certain diagnostic products and other biological and biotechnology-derived human products
Ensure the safety and effectiveness of medical devices and eliminating unnecessary human exposure to manmade radiation from medical, occupational and consumer products
Include conducting inspections and investigations of food and drug manufacturing establishments, performing analytical work and recommending enforcement actions.
