The New York Academy of Medicine is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Anthony Shih as Executive Vice President beginning on March 1, 2014.
As a member of NYAM’s Leadership Team, Dr. Shih will lead the implementation of NYAM’s new strategic plan, which was developed through an intensive organization-wide process in 2013. He will also take the lead in advancing the efforts we have made over the past four years to increase the engagement of our Fellows in our work. In turn, NYAM can serve as an even stronger resource for our Fellows’ own professional development and networking with each other.
Dr. Shih is a physician executive who has spent his entire career working to improve the health and health care of populations. Most recently, he was Executive Vice President for Programs at the Commonwealth Fund, overseeing all programmatic and research activities for this national foundation dedicated to improving the U.S. health system through supporting and conducting research that improves health care policy and practice.
Dr. Shih also spent many years in various senior management positions at IPRO, a national, non-profit health care quality improvement organization. His responsibilities ranged from developing and implementing statewide health care quality improvement initiatives for Medicare and Medicaid populations, to later leading IPRO's corporate strategy and organizational development activities.
Earlier in his career, Dr. Shih worked in an urban community mental health clinic focused on serving immigrants and refugees. He is board-certified in Preventive Medicine and Public Health, and received his education at Amherst College, the New York University School of Medicine, and Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health.
“Dr. Shih’s personal style, experience, and expertise make him ideally suited to assume this important role at NYAM,” said Dr. Jo Ivey Boufford, NYAM President. “As a native New Yorker, he says that NYAM's mission to promote urban health in NYC and around the world resonates deeply with him, as do our priority areas. I’m very excited about the experience and expertise he brings to advance our mission.”
