MORE about us:

Interested in data science, data management, open science, public access, vocabularies and ontologies, consumer health, common data elements, genetics, natural language processing, imaging, digital humanities, software preservation, exhibits, and digital communication? So are we.

The NLM Associate Fellowship Program offers a formal curriculum with exposure to library operations, research and development, intramural and extramural research, development and lifecycle of the NLM web-based products and services and the extensive outreach and education program reaching consumers, special populations, health professionals and librarians. In the second half of the year, Associate Fellows have the opportunity to choose projects based on real-world problems proposed by library divisions and work with librarians and library staff over a six-seven month period. Successful projects have led to peer-review publications and to services that have become a regular part of the services and product of the National Library of Medicine.

The September through August program also offers professional development and an introduction to the wider world of health sciences librarianship that may include:

Supported attendance at national professional conferences, including the Medical Library Association’s annual meeting, the American Medical Informatics Association annual meeting and others

  • Additional seminars, field trips and learning opportunities available on the National Institutes of Health (NIH) campus
  • Opportunities to meet and interact with senior management at the National Library of Medicine
  • Rotation at the NIH Library (by arrangement)
  • Experienced mentors from National Library of Medicine staff
  • Potential to complete a second year fellowship at a health sciences library in the United States

The Fellowship offers:

  • A stipend equivalent to a U.S. Civil Service salary at the GS-9 level ($53,435 in 2016)
  • Additional financial support for the purchase of health insurance
  • Up to $1,500 in relocation funding
