The Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) program is a flagship leadership development program. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has participated in the PMF program since 1985.
For more than three decades, the Presidential Management Fellows Program (PMF) has been the federal government’s premier leadership development program for advanced degree candidates. The Program focuses on developing a cadre of potential government leaders. Under the regulations proposed by OPM, the eligibility window for applicants is expanded, making the program more “student friendly” by aligning it with academic calendars.
