The NAM Fellowship allows early-career health science scholars to participate in evidence-based health care or public health studies and prepares young investigators to contribute to the future direction of health care throughout their careers while also accelerating their career development.

During these two-year programs requiring a 10 to 20 percent commitment of time, fellows are assigned to a health- and medicine-related board of the National Academies. A flexible research stipend of $25,000 is awarded to each fellow.

Endowed Fellowships

  • The Norman F. Gant/American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) Fellowship is named in honor of Norman F. Gant, M.D., a member of the NAM and the executive director of ABOG.

  • The James C. Puffer, M.D./American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) Fellowship provides talented, early-career health policy or health science scholars in the field of family medicine to participate in health- and- medicine-related work of the National Academies and to further their careers as future leaders in the field.
  • The overall purpose of the Gilbert S. Omenn Fellowship at the NAM is to enable talented, early-career scholars combining biomedical science and population health to participate actively in the National Academies study process, promoting the integration of public health and medicine — both scientifically and through practice and policy.
  • The American Board of Emergency Medicine (ABEM) Fellowship provides early-career health science scholars with the opportunity to experience and participate in evidence-based health care or public health studies that improve the care and access to care of patients in domestic and global health care systems.
  • The Greenwall Fellowship in Bioethics enables young investigators to participate actively in health- and- medicine-related work of the National Academies and to further their careers as future leaders addressing bioethics issues in clinical care, biomedical research, and public policy.
