The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is a government agency whose mission is to safeguard the American public through rigorous testing, inspection and approval processes for food and pharmaceuticals. This important regulatory body traces its roots to 1906 when it was formally created by President Theodore Roosevelt to promote both truth in advertising and the safety of food and medicines.
The FDA's headquarters is located in Silver Springs, Maryland. In addition to regulating food, tobacco, vitamin supplements and pharmaceuticals, the agency also oversees and approves medical devices for humans and animals, and inspects a large number of consumable imports. The FDA's budget is more than $4 billion annually.
The FDA employs over 9,000 people in its more than 220 field offices and laboratories in the United States. Career opportunities in medicine, science and research are available in many disciplines regulated by the agency. Positions for professionals in inspection, engineering, pharmacology and information technology are also offered. Salaries are extremely competitive, depending on the level of expertise required. Benefit packages are comprehensive and include full medical insurance, retirement plans, tuition reimbursement, paid leave and employee assistance programs.
