Thank you for your interest in the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine’s (ACMGF) Summer Genetic Scholars program. We are extremely grateful to BioMarin whose continued generosity of this program will allow 8-10 students to participate in the summer of 2022. This 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, 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.
