Thank you for your interest in the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine’s (ACMGF) Summer Genetic Scholars program (SGSP). We are extremely grateful to BioMarin and Ultragenyx whose support of this program will allow the largest cohort of 25* students to participate in the summer of 2022. To view the 2022 Summer Genetic Scholars Program cohort, please click on the “2022 SGSP Institutions and Scholars” button on the right of the screen.
The Summer Genetic Scholars program is a popular Foundation program that allows students who have completed their first year of medical school to work directly with a medical geneticist mentor. The six-week program educates future physicians about medical genetics and genomics in a “real world” setting and thanks to support from BioMarin and Ultragenyx, participating students receive a stipend.
SGSP was started in 2011 and has sponsored over 150 scholars at more than 30 different institutions around the country since then. This program has a lasting impact on participants.
