The prestigious fellowship provides talented, early career health science scholars the opportunity to participate actively in the work of the IOM and further their careers as future leaders in the field.

"The fellowship experience will be advantageous for both the fellows and the Institute of Medicine," said Marie Michnich, IOM's director of health policy educational programs and fellowships.  "The Institute welcomes these two accomplished scholars, and we look forward to their contributions to IOM's boards and committees."

IOM Anniversary Fellows are selected for their professional qualifications, reputations as scholars, professional accomplishments, and the relevance of their current field expertise to the work of IOM.  Glickman will continue his main academic responsibilities while engaging part time in IOM's health and science policy work over a two-year period.

“I was very excited and honored to be afforded this opportunity,” Glickman said. “The fellowship will allow me to grow professionally and gain exposure to key leaders in health care quality and policy. In turn, I am committed to working on solutions to improve the quality of health care delivery and look forward to bringing my unique perspectives of the health care system as an emergency physician and research scientist.”

IOM Anniversary Fellows receive a mentorship and a research stipend of $25,000. The program is funded by the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Foundation in honor of John A. Benson, M.D., an IOM member and past president and CEO of ABIM.
