NLM's Associate Fellowship Program -2nd year
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) seeks proposals from institutions offering to host a Second Year Associate Fellow for the period September 1, 2010 through August 31, 2011. Proposals are due by February 5, 2010.
The Associate Fellowship program is a postgraduate training program for promising health sciences librarians. Fellows spend the first year at the National Library of Medicine, learning about its programs and services and conducting research projects. The optional Second Year Program allows Associate Fellows to supplement their year at NLM, through an opportunity to observe and practice the organizational, professional, and interpersonal skills that librarians need to successfully integrate information services into health care service, education, and research. The Host Institution must demonstrate that information services are integrated into the basic functions of the institution and that librarians are full participants in the multidisciplinary teams carrying out these activities. Second-year Fellows will participate in activities appropriate to their interests and the needs of the Host Institution. The Second Year Fellowship will be for a 12-month period beginning September 1, 2010. There are currently five first year Associate Fellows eligible for a second year placement.
