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. Institutions selected for the 2023 program year will be notified by January 9, 2023.
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.
