Fellowship Donation Form
AACP, ACCP, and President-elect J. Lyle Bootman, Ph.D., announce a newly created fellowship. The pharmacy academy and the wider pharmacy community can now make a significant impact on the work of the esteemed Institute of Medicine through this fellowship.
This is part of a broader fellowship program created to honor IOM’s 35th anniversary by enabling talented, early-career health science scholars to participate actively in IOM initiatives and further their careers as future leaders in our field.
The program details include:
The first fellow will begin the program in October 2012.
AACP and ACCP are endowing the fellowship with contributions of $150,000 per organization. A generous gift from the Research Corporation Technology, Inc in honor of Dr. Bootman provides additional support. To fully endow the fund and launch the 2012 inaugural fellowship an additional $275,000 must be raised from individuals and organizations.
AACP and ACCP invite you to help us bring a rising star to the IOM as the inaugural Pharmacy Fellow.
With October right around the corner, we’re moving with great enthusiasm and speed to develop funding as we solicit nominations for our first fellow. Please consider supporting this important effort.
The benefits of this fellowship are enormous—mainly, we have the opportunity to strengthen the IOM’s focus on critical pharmacy issues. As you consider a donation, please know that we will match our gratitude with recognition of your support in various communications related to this fellowship. Thank you!
The IOM Anniversary Pharmacy Fellowship will provide an exceptional opportunity for early career scholars to experience the work of the IOM. The IOM brings together the most eminent researchers, policy experts and clinicians from across the country to work together to provide nonpartisan, scientific and evidence-based advice to national, state and local policymakers; academic leaders; healthcare administrators; and the public. This Fellowship builds on a program created to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the IOM’s establishment and will enable select early career health policy or health science scholars in pharmacy to participate actively in the work of the IOM and to further their careers as future leaders in the field. Each Fellowship will be awarded for a two-year period. During this time, Fellows are expected to continue their work at their main post while being assigned to a board of the IOM. The boards are:
The Fellowship requires a 10-20 percent commitment of time for two years and includes attendance at a one-week orientation to health policy in October, the Fall IOM Annual Meeting, and the meetings of the assigned board. Additionally, Fellows will participate actively in the work of an appropriate expert study committee or roundtable, including contributing to its reports or other products.
This experience will introduce Fellows to a variety of experts and perspectives, including legislators, government officials, industry leaders, executives of voluntary health organizations, scientists and other health professionals. Each Fellow will be assigned to an IOM member who will serve as a senior mentor during the two years of the fellowship.
Each Pharmacy Fellow will be asked to designate a tax exempt institution, which shall receive an unrestricted award of $25,000, with an expressed preference that the award be used to advance the Fellow’s professional and academic career in so far as it is practical to do. The stipend will be administered through the appropriate department in the Fellow’s home institution.
Nominees for the IOM Fellowship must meet the following requirements:
Preference will be given to candidates who have a demonstrated interest in and focus on healthcare quality or health services.
All materials should be sent to Dr. Lucinda L. Maine, AACP Executive Vice President and CEO, or Michael Maddux, ACCP Executive Director, no later than June 29, 2012.
