2018 NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows

AAHSL and NLM Announce 2018 Leadership Fellows

The Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries and the National Library of Medicine (https://www.nlm.nih.gov) are pleased to announce the members of the 2017-2018 class of the NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program. The jointly sponsored program matches fellows and mentors in a one year leadership development program. Since the program began in 2002, 49 percent of fellow graduates have assumed director positions.

The NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program prepares emerging leaders for director positions in academic health sciences libraries through a combination of in-person and virtual learning experiences for fellows, and a year-long mentoring relationship with a current director. Selection is competitive and recognition of a substantial record of leadership accomplishment and potential for a director position. The cohort includes five fellows and their mentors, who will begin their work together at the November AAHSL meeting in Boston.
