The National Institutes of Health (NIH), in partnership with the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG), is seeking qualiﬁed physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and genetic counselors interested in acquiring experience to lead genomic medicine research and implementation programs at the NIH, major medical centers, and other organizations.
The NIH-ACMG Genomic Medicine Program Management Fellowship was recently established as a partnership among the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics (ACMG) and four components of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) - the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD), and the All of Us (AoU) Research Program. This two-year fellowship seeks to increase the pool of health practitioners trained in managing research and implementation programs in genomic medicine, which we consider to be the use of genomic information as part of an individual patient’s clinical care. Two fellowships will be awarded annually and administered primarily by the ACMG,in collaboration with a fellowship committee of NIH representatives. We anticipate a start date in early July of each year, though exceptions may be considered.
Interested and eligible candidates must complete the application below, submit a curriculum vitae, and summary of their experience and interest (2-3 pages) by December 1, 2020 at 5:00 PM, Eastern Time (ET). After this date, applications will be considered on a rolling basis, if space remains. The summary should include: (1) a brief description of the applicant’s clinical training and prior professional positions; (2) interest and relevant experience in genomic medicine program management; (3) knowledge of genomic medicine implementation barriers and solutions; and (4) ideas about potential fellowship options (e.g., rotations, clinical involvement, or areas of emphasis), if known.
