Washington University School of Medicine’s Academy is a service-based Academy with a selective membership. Membership criteria will require a formal review process with membership selection being a form of high honors. Membership in the Academy is for five years and may be renewable based on evidence of contributions to the academy’s activities and participation in its programs. Members who are elected are expected to actively participate in academy events, including attendance and participation in scheduled Academy meetings (to be held on a roughly once monthly basis). Members will be asked to self-report on engagement on an annual basis, including programming they wish to see developed or expanded. In the application, candidates are asked to indicate areas in which they may desire to participate; these will be finalized after Academy Fellows are selected.
