Fellowships are classified by education and experience:

Regular Fellows are classified as trainees and do not require an FTE. Regular Fellows are appointed to study physical and mental diseases and impairments of humankind; the organization, provision and financing of health services; and information communication.

Appointments for Regular Fellows may be for citizens or non-citizens (not born in the United States or naturalized) and may be full-time (80 hours or more per pay period) or part-time (less than 80 hours per pay period) unless Visa requirements dictate otherwise.
