In the Shoes of a Fellow: The National Library of Medicine’s Associate Fellowship Program
Having a solid foundation of experience is essential for early-career librarians. For those interested in the health sciences, it may seem difficult at times to find opportunities to grow as a leader and a librarian. The National Library of Medicine Associate Fellowship Program is a one-year postgraduate training fellowship at the NLM in Bethesda, Maryland, with an optional second year component. The program is designed to provide a broad foundation in health sciences information services, and to prepare librarians for future leadership roles in health sciences libraries and in health services research. In this webinar, a current Associate Fellow will discuss the organization of the program, her experiences as an Associate Fellow, and some of the projects she and other fellows worked on.
Presenter: Shannon Sheridan, MLIS, NLM Associate Fellow

Additionally, Ms. Sheridan volunteered at the St. Clair Hospital Health Sciences Library, where her interest in medical librarianship began.
