The National Library of Medicine Associate Fellowship is a one-year residency program for recent library science graduates interested in a career in health sciences librarianship. The program combines curriculum and project work and is located at the National Library of Medicine on the campus of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland.

The Associate Fellowship provides knowledge and skills in project work ranging from:

  • Fundamentals of data science, and projects in data wrangling, data analysis, data visualization, programming, and data policy
  • Creation of online tutorials and educational videos, conducting user needs assessments
  • Development of an in-depth understanding of the development, production, implementation of NLM product and services

The Associate Fellowship offers opportunities for professional development through:

  • Participation in lectures, exercises, conferences, short and extended visits to other health sciences libraries
  • Workshops on work style, resume review, negotiation, and presentation skills
  • Mentorship from a program coordinator and NLM staff who serve as preceptors

The participant will receive an annual stipend of $56,233; additional supplement for health insurance; relocation funding; and travel and training support to attend conferences.

Recent Master’s graduates or Master’s students who will soon complete their degrees are encouraged to apply.  The fellowships offer a very competitive annual stipend and an annual travel allowance for the participant.
