The NAM Fellowship in Osteopathic Medicine was established in 2014 through the support of the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine (AACOM), and the American Osteopathic Foundation (AOF) to enable talented, early-career health science scholars to participate actively in health- and medicine-related work of the National Academies and to further their careers as future leaders in the field. The program especially welcomes nominations of under-represented minority candidates.
This program is designed for health science scholars who are 1-to-10 years out from completion of a residency or receipt of a doctoral degree to participate in the process by which the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (the National Academies) provide health advice to the nation. This direct involvement in health- and medicine-related work of the National Academies prepares young investigators to contribute to the future direction of health care throughout their careers while also accelerating their career development.
