Description:
The Omenn Fellowship is awarded for a two-year period. During this time, the fellow is expected to continue to work at his/her main academic post, while being assigned to a health- and medicine-related board of the National Academies. The boards are:

◦Children, Youth, and Families

◦Food and Nutrition

◦Global Health

◦Health Care Services

◦Health Sciences Policy

◦Population Health and Public Health Practice

The fellowship requires a ten-to-twenty percent commitment of time for two years, and includes attendance at a one-week orientation to health policy in October, the Fall NAM Annual Meeting and the meetings of the assigned board. Additionally, the fellow will participate actively in the work of an appropriate expert study committee or roundtable, including contributing to its reports or other products. Studies will be identified that would enable the potential for the fellow to contribute to the value of integrating medicine and public health.

This experience will introduce the Omenn Fellow to a variety of experts and perspectives, including legislators, government officials, industry leaders, executives of voluntary health organizations, scientists, and other health professionals. In addition, each fellow will be assigned to an NAM member who will serve as a senior mentor during the two years of the fellowship.

A flexible research stipend of $25,000 is awarded to each Omenn Fellow. The stipend will be administered through the appropriate department in the fellow’s home institution. Stipends are not intended for use as salary offsets.
