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 15 students to participate in the summer of 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.
