Candidates for admission to membership in the Academy of Medicine are nominated by Academy members after they submit an official application form (see below) signed by two active members, a Curriculum Vitae (CV) of the candidate and signed letters of support from two active AOM members. The application is submitted to the Chair of the Admissions committee. Applications are received throughout the year. The applications are reviewed by all members of the Admissions committee and approved or not by majority vote for presentation to the Board of Directors for final vote. The Board of Directors will consider all candidates approved by the Admissions committee by email and the nominee and their two sponsors will be notified of the Board’s decision by the Academy Secretary and the Chair of the Admissions committee respectively.

Before nominating a candidate for membership, the sponsors should ensure that the nominee understands that membership dues are $250 a year. These dues are waived until January of the year following their election. Potential candidates should also understand that membership in the Academy carries a responsibility for participating in the activities of the Academy, both attending meetings and serving on Academy committees.

Nomination packets should be sent to the Chairman of the Admissions Committee. For February 2019 to February 2020, the chair is Dr. Robert Goldstein. He can be contacted by email at:
