Institute of Medicine Elects New Members, Foreign Associates


Get Permission

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recently announced the names of 70 new members and 10 foreign associates during its 43rd Annual Meeting.  “It is an honor to welcome our highly distinguished colleagues to the Institute of Medicine,” said IOM President Harvey V. Fineberg.  “These individuals have inspired us through their achievements in research, teaching, clinical work, and other contributions to the medical field. Their knowledge and skills will deeply enrich the IOM.”

Diversity of Talent

New members are elected by current active members through a selective process that recognizes individuals who have made major contributions to the advancement of the medical sciences, health care, and public health.  A diversity of talent among IOM’s membership is assured by the Institute’s charter, which stipulates that at least one-quarter of the membership is selected from outside the health professions, for example, from such fields as the law, engineering, social sciences, and the humanities. 

With their election, members make a commitment to volunteer their service on IOM committees, boards, and other activities.  Projects during the past year include have included studies of the benefits of including physical activity in the school environment, improved delivery of cancer care, the international problem of illegitimate and substandard medications, and more.
