About the International Fellows Program

The International Fellows Program

The Mission of the Middleton Foundation for Ethical Studies (MFES) is to engage in scholarly inquiry into contemporary ethical issues and to foster awareness on a national and international basis.

Since its inception, MFES has collaborated with the Western Institutional Review Board (WIRB) to provide a training program for research professionals throughout the world.

Conducted in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the University of Washington, the WIRB International Fellows Program is a six-month long training program for foreign health care professionals who desire to learn how to establish or improve review boards in their regions.  It is an intensive program designed to help participants develop the skills necessary to create and/or manage and administer international review boards that will protect the rights and welfare of human research subjects.

Eligible candidates for the training program must: (1) have an operational knowledge of research procedures and methods; (2) have an ability to speak and read English, and; (3) hold positions that will allow them to build capacity for ethics review of institutions in their home countries.

Funding support for roundtrip airfare, medical insurance, and monthly living expenses should be provided by international organizations, governments, institutions or by personal funds.  A limited number of scholarships are provided by MFES.
