The Inter-Society Coordinating Committee for Practitioner Education in Genomics (ISCC-PEG) is a collaborative group aimed at improving healthcare provider genomics education. Currently, ISSC-PEG has over 180 members, which include societies, institutes, individuals and industry members. The committee is supported by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI).

Since its inception, ISCC-PEG has provided an important forum for discussion and, through project groups, conference calls and in-person meetings, developed resources for genomics education including webinars, published competencies and workshops at meetings of member organizations.

The goal of the ISCC-PEG Scholars Program is to allow a student or trainee with an interest in genomics education to have exposure to the broader genomics community and experts in the field with the opportunity to work on a genomics-related education project. The appointment will be for two years, and the student or trainee must be enrolled in a college, higher degree program or training program when they begin their term as a scholar. The Scholar will participate in ISCC-PEG plenary calls and have travel funded to the annual ISCC-PEG in-person meeting (typically during January or February) for a presentation on their progress. This program is not a full-time fellowship, post-doctoral, or salaried position. Travel to the ISCC-PEG meeting is the only financial component. The Selection Committee will be made up of the ISCC-PEG Co-Chairs, the Project Group Coordinator, and the Co-chairs of Project Groups. For any questions, email: ISCCPEGScholars@nih.gov.
