Hurst named to selective national leadership development program
August 19, 2019
Deputy Director and Head of Research and Education at Tompkins-McCaw Library Emily Hurst has been selected as an Association of Academic Health Sciences/National Library of Medicine leadership fellow for 2019-20.
This highly competitive and prestigious program matches fellows and mentors in a one year leadership development program. It is a highly selective program with five fellows annually.
The NLM/AAHSL Leadership Fellows Program prepares emerging leaders for director positions in academic health sciences libraries. The program provides a combination of in-person and virtual learning experiences for fellows and offers the opportunity to work collaboratively with the cohort of participants.
Fellows are paired with mentors who are experienced and established academic health sciences library directors. Mentors work closely with their fellows throughout the year, and host their fellow’s visits to their library.
Hurst’s mentor will be Rose Bland, MA, MPA, AHIP, Director, Shimberg Health Sciences Library, University of South Florida.
