The New York Academy of Medicine (NYAM) seeks a dynamic, accomplished, and visionary leader to serve as its next President. With 175 years of rich history as a leading institution for medicine and public health, NYAM addresses the barriers that prevent every individual from living a healthy life.

The mission of NYAM spans policy leadership, clinical medicine, public health advocacy, innovative and community-centered research, evaluation of health programming, education, and public engagement. Its work is accomplished in collaboration with numerous partners, including community-based organizations, and the biomedical community including healthcare providers, academia, governmental agencies, and its dedicated, elected Fellows and Members from health-related professions. Current assets include an investment portfolio of over $70 million, grants and contracts awarded over the past five years totaling $27.5 million, and one of the most distinguished libraries of the history of medicine and public health in the world, housed in its historic building on Museum Mile in New York City.

Working with an engaged Board of Trustees they will be a vigorous and compelling champion for NYAM’s future by setting and refining the vision and strategic direction for the next phase of the organization’s growth and development. As NYAM strives to increase its impact, develops exciting new opportunities, and deepens its ties both within and beyond the New York area, the Board of Trustees seeks an exceptional leader to serve as an energetic ambassador for the organization.
