SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In compliance with 44 U.S.C. 3507, FDA has 
submitted the following proposed collection of information to OMB for 
review and clearance.
Application for Participation in the Medical Device Fellowship 
Program--OMB Control Number 0910-0551--Extension
    Sections 1104, 1302, 3301, 3304, 3320, 3361, 3393, and 3394 of 
Title 5 of the United States Code authorize Federal Agencies to rate 
applicants for Federal jobs. Collecting applications for the Medical 
Device Fellowship Program will allow FDA's Center for Devices and 
Radiological Health (CDRH) to easily and efficiently elicit and review 
information from students and health care professionals who are 
interested in becoming involved in CDRH activities. The process will 
reduce the time and cost of submitting written documentation to the 
Agency and lessen the likelihood of applications being misrouted within 
the Agency mail system. It will assist the Agency in promoting and 
protecting the public health by encouraging outside persons to share 
their expertise with CDRH.
    In the Federal Register of September 6, 2016 (81 FR 61221), FDA 
published a 60-day notice requesting public comment on the proposed
