The National Academy of Medicine is a part of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, along with the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), National Academy of Engineering (NAE), and the National Research Council (NRC). The National Academy of Medicine provides national advice on issues relating to biomedical science, medicine, and health, and serves as an adviser to the nation to improve health. It aims to provide unbiased, evidence-based, and authoritative information and advice concerning health and science policy to policy-makers, professionals, leaders in every sector of society, and the public at large. Operating outside the framework of the U.S. federal government, it relies on a volunteer workforce of scientists and other experts, operating under a formal peer-review system. As a national academy, new members of the organization are elected annually by current members, based on their distinguished and continuing achievements in a relevant field as well as for their willingness to participate actively.

The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences at Brandeis University is a center for pioneering investigation embedded in the cooperative environment of a student-centered, medium-size research university. We are driven by academic excellence, reverence for learning, and inclusivity — values of the Jewish tradition. The smaller size of our doctoral, master's and postbaccalaureate programs enables scholars to build close relationships with our world-class faculty and conduct interdisciplinary research across traditional academic boundaries.
