14 UC faculty elected to Institute of Medicine membership
Fourteen University of California members have been elected to the National Academies’ Institute of Medicine, joining a class of 65 new members and five foreign associates, it was announced Oct. 17.
The Institute of Medicine has elected more than 200 members affiliated with UC since it was established in 1970.
Membership in the Institute of Medicine is considered one of the highest honors in the fields of health and medicine. Chosen by current active members, candidates undergo a highly selective process and are nominated based on their professional achievements and commitment to service.
The Institute of Medicine includes a diversity of talent, as its charter requires that at least one quarter of the membership selected be from outside the health professions, in fields such as the social sciences, law, engineering and the humanities.
