The School of Medicine has been invited to identify outstanding Americans to apply for the White House Fellows Program.

President Lyndon B. Johnson established the White House Fellowships in 1964 to provide individuals with first-hand, high-level experience in the workings of the Federal government. White House Fellows typically spend a year working as full-time, paid special assistants to senior White House Staff, the Vice President, Cabinet Secretaries and other top-ranking government officials. Fellows also participate in an education program consisting of roundtable discussion with renowned leaders from the private and sectors, and trips to study U.S. policy in action both domestically and internationally. Between 11 and 19 Fellow are selected each year. After completing their Fellowship year, Fellows are expected to repay the privilege by applying what they have learned to serve as even greater leaders in their communities, profession and in public service.
