Neurology Nuts and Bolts: Constructing your career, types of careers: Federal Drug Administration (FDA)

Listen here to Neurology Nuts and Bolts: Constructing Your Career, a podcast from Creator and Executive Producer Sara Schaefer MD MHS about all the things that you wish you were taught about the practice of neurology. The podcast covers types of careers, contracts and worth, promotional development and CV building, continuing medical education and maintenance of certification, visas, billing and coding, challenges on the job, work/life balance, and more.

Originally released: January 18, 2024

Sara Schaefer speaks with Dr. Paul Lee, child neurologist and Director of Division Neurology 2 at the FDA, and Dr. Daniela Pimentel Maldonado, neuroimmunologist and clinical reviewer at the FDA. They discuss what they do, how it differs from other jobs in academia, industry, or at the NIH, and what about their work gets them out of bed every morning.

We believe that the principles expressed or implied in the podcast remain valid, but certain details may be superseded by evolving knowledge since the episode’s original release date.
