Thank you for your interest in the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine’s (ACMGF) Summer Genetic Scholars program (SGSP). The deadline for institutions wishing to host a Summer Scholar in 2023 has passed.
To view the institutions selected for the 2023 Summer Genetic Scholars Program, please click on the “2023 Participating Institutions” button on the right of the screen. Students wishing to apply for this program should contact the participating institutions directly.
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 almost 175 scholars at more than 30 different institutions around the country since then. This program has a lasting impact on participants.
