Archives Summer INTERNSHIP – Association of American Medical Colleges Washington, DC

The AAMC Reference Center and Mary H. Littlemeyer Archives is a service to AAMC staff and members of the public. Reference Center staff provide reference, research, and access to current and historical collections in order to assist in leading the academic medicine community to improve the health of all. Our Archives collection ensures documentation of the Association: its origin, development, policies, and activities.

Development Opportunities:

The intern will learn/use basic archival skills to acquire, appraise, arrange and describe records.  They will also do some historical research to write the historical notes.
