NAM Fellowships for Health Science Scholars allow exceptional early-career academic professionals to participate in evidence-based health care or public health studies that affect the health of the American people. Through direct involvement in health- and medicine-related work of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, the fellowship prepares young investigators to contribute to the future of health care while accelerating their own career development.
