The Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries and the National Library of Medicine (https://www.nlm.nih.gov) are pleased to announce the members of the 2018-2019 class of the NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program. The jointly sponsored program matches fellows and mentors in a one year leadership development program. Since the program began in 2002, 54 percent of fellow graduates have assumed director positions.
The National Library of Medicine (NLM) is pleased to announce the future plans of its 2017-2018 class of Associate Fellows. The Associate Fellowship Program is a one-year postgraduate training program with an optional second year. This competitive program provides associates with a broad foundation in health sciences information services and prepares librarians for future leadership roles in health sciences libraries and health services research. This group of Associate Fellows recently ended the first year of their fellowship. All three will continue for a second year of the Associate Fellowship Program in libraries in Chicago and Philadelphia.
