The purpose of the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine Summer Genetics Scholars Program is to identify and encourage highly qualified medical students to consider careers in medical genetics by providing hands-on experience of the exciting variety of opportunities—clinical and laboratory medicine, research, and services—available in medical genetics.
Students choose leading participating medical genetics institutions, approved by ACMG, for a 6-week period during the Summer between their first and second years of medical school, to work under the direct supervision of experienced medical geneticists. Each student receives a stipend of $420 per 40 hour work week for this period with a maximum amount of $2520. The Principal Mentor must be a ACMG member.
