NLM Requests Proposals for 2nd year Associate Fellow Host Institutions
The NLM Associate Fellowship Program includes an optional second year at a library or information center in an academic health sciences center, hospital, or other health-related organization. The additional year provides an opportunity to develop skills and gain experience in working with administrators, librarians, health professionals, system developers, and educators to design and implement information services that are integrated with clinical and/or educational programs and contribute directly to accomplishing the parent institution’s mission. NLM requests proposals for 2nd year Associate Fellow host institutions.
NEW THIS YEAR: The RFP this year asks that potential host institutions focus their offer on 1-2 specific areas of expertise:
• Clinical informatics
• Outreach to underserved or previously unreached populations
• Management and curation of e-only health sciences collections
• Specialized library experience (veterinary, public health, science, etc.)
New proposals are required for any potential second year host to conform with the areas of expertise and revised scoring format.
NLM invites proposals from potential host institutions for the 2nd year of the NLM Associate Fellowship program. The NLM Associate Fellowship Program includes an optional 2nd year at a library or information center in an academic health sciences center, hospital, or other health-related organization. The additional year provides an opportunity to develop skills and gain experience in working with teams that include administrators, librarians, health professionals, system developers, and educators. The program year will run from Sept. 1, 2010-August 31, 2011.
The Request for Proposals (RFP) is posted on the Associate Fellowship Program web site (http://www.nlm.nih.gov/about/training/associate/2yrinfo.html). The web site includes a description of the program and a link to the Request for Proposals, which specifies the information to be included in the proposal and the evaluation criteria. The deadline for receipt of proposals is February 5, 2010.
Reminder: Institutions currently hosting a 2nd year Fellow are not eligible to host a 2nd year Fellow in 2010-2011. A one-year waiting period between Fellows is now required.
