Landscape of Regulatory Science Training
The primary objective of this survey is to gather detailed data on existing regulatory science-focused training (fellowships, degrees, programs) throughout the United States (while including international programs where possible). This effort is being led by the Association for Clinical and Translational Science (ACTS)'s Regulatory Science Special Interest Group.
This survey should be completed by an individual in your program who is best able to provide detailed high-level information, such as program coordinators or program directors. If you feel that a colleague would be better able to respond to these items, please forward as appropriate. Depending on the training programs you offer, you will be prompted to complete additional brief questions on the next page. We anticipate that completion of these questions should take no more than 20 minutes. Note: Any identifying information will be redacted when the results are aggregated and reported.
We utilize the definition of "regulatory science" developed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA): "Regulatory Science is the science of developing new tools, standards, and approaches to assess the safety, efficacy, quality, and performance of all FDA-regulated products." Please note that this is different from programs that exclusively focus on regulatory affairs (ensuring compliance with current FDA regulations).
