Baylor College of Medicine now has 13 members in the National Academy of Medicine, formerly the Institute of Medicine. The organization is unique in its structure as both an honorific membership organization and an advisory organization. Established in 1970 as the health branch of the National Academy of Sciences, it has become recognized as a national resource for independent, scientifically informed analysis and recommendations on health issues. With their election, members make a commitment to volunteer their service on NAM committees, boards, and other activities.
