Fellows: The Core of the Academy's Strength

The Academy’s prestigious Fellows program, the foundation on which the Academy was established in 1847, includes more than 2,000 individuals, elected by their peers, from across the medical and health professions. Working collaboratively across disciplines and specialties, in a tradition of honor and service, the Fellows are organized into 20 diverse sections and groups that address clinical and population health issues facing individuals and communities in New York City and cities around the world. The Office of Trustee & Fellowship Affairs is the hub for coordination of over 40 annual events, facilitation of the Fellows’ networking and engagement in Academy work conducted by the Institute of Urban Health and the Library, and the distribution of over $350,000 annually in endowed grants and awards.
