The Foundation's Harold Amos Medical Faculty Development Program was designed to provide four-year postdoctoral research awards offered to historically disadvantaged physicians who are committed to developing careers in academic medicine, to improving the health of underserved populations, and to furthering the understanding and elimination of health disparities.Four-year fellowships are awarded in two phases to candidates selected on a competitive basis for research under the supervision of a senior faculty member at an academic center noted for the training of young faculty. Preparation of minority faculty to assume leadership roles in academic medicine should contribute to a continuing commitment in the nation's medical schools to increase the number of minority physicians in the U.S. Dr. Calle began his fellowship January 1989 and has demonstrated satisfactory progress in his investigation of the role of protein kinase C in insulin secretion.
