Biography

Holly J. Humphrey, MD, MACP, became the eighth president of the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation in July 2018. Immediately prior to her appointment as President, she served for 15 years as the Ralph W. Gerard Professor in Medicine and Dean for Medical Education at the University of Chicago. In this role, she oversaw undergraduate, graduate, and continuing medical education at the Pritzker School of Medicine.

While serving as Dean for Medical Education, Dr. Humphrey launched numerous programs, including the Roadmap to Professionalism initiative to support and enhance the highest professional standards in the learning environment. She also led a major curriculum reform effort entitled The Pritzker Initiative: A Curriculum for the 21st Century. She is the editor of Mentoring in Academic Medicine (2010) and is the author of numerous peer-reviewed publications on issues related to medical education. Her vision for medical education as a discipline worthy of scholarship led to creating the MERITS fellowship program in medical education open to residents, nurses, and faculty, and she supported two institution-wide initiatives in interprofessional learning.

Dr. Humphrey established the Pritzker Advising and Mentoring Societies to support students and the Academy of Distinguished Medical Educators to support faculty. She is the co-founder of the Bowman Society, which explores issues of health care disparities and provides mentoring for minority students, residents, and faculty. She also oversaw the development of new pipeline programs for under-represented minority students interested in careers in medicine. Most recently, she founded Pritzker’s Identity and Inclusion Initiative (i2i), a collaborative faculty/student committee that promotes an inclusive learning environment and respectful and effective communication with diverse patients and colleagues around issues of identity.

An honors graduate of Pritzker, Dr. Humphrey completed her internal medicine residency, pulmonary and critical care fellowship and Chief Residency all in the department of medicine at the University of Chicago. Her 14-year tenure as Director of the Internal Medicine Residency Program created the foundation for her medical education career.

Dr. Humphrey is a national leader in medical education and serves on the Board of Directors for the Kaiser Permanente School of Medicine. She is Chair Emeritus of the American Board of Internal Medicine, immediate past chair of the American Board of Internal Medicine Foundation, and a past President of the Association of Program Directors in Internal Medicine (APDIM). She serves on the Boards of Directors for both Alpha Omega Alpha and the Bucksbaum Institute for Clinical Excellence. Awards and honors are many and include the Dema C. Daley Founders Award from APDIM and selection as a Master by the American College of Physicians. Crain’s Chicago Business featured her as one of their “Women to Watch” and the YWCA of Metropolitan Chicago honored her as the Outstanding Leader in the Professions. The University of Chicago’s Alumni Association honored her with a Distinguished Service Award. Her teaching honors and awards are many and include her selection by graduating Pritzker students more than 25 times as a favorite faculty teacher.

Career History
President
2018 - Current

Kate Macy Ladd established the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation in 1930 to honor the memory of her father. Ladd intended the Foundation to devote itself to the promotion of health and the ministry of healing. Ladd’s father, Josiah Macy Jr., was an eighth generation descendant of Thomas Macy, who emigrated from England in 1635. In 1659, Thomas Macy and nine other men purchased Nantucket Island (then a part of New York) to seek religious freedom. Six generations and nearly 200 years later, Josiah Jr.’s grandfather, Captain Josiah Macy, left Nantucket and established a successful shipping firm in New York City. Under Captain Macy’s sons and grandsons the firm prospered, opened one of the first oil refineries in New York, and ultimately was purchased by the Standard Oil Company. In 1876, Josiah Macy, Jr. – known as a prominent philanthropist – died of typhoid fever at the age 38. The family’s philanthropic tradition was continued by his daughter, Kate, who by the time of her death in 1945 had given the Foundation $19 million. This endowment has grown and represents the sole source of the Foundation’s funds. In a letter outlining her vision for the Foundation, Ladd wrote: “It is my desire that the Foundation in the use of this gift should concentrate on a few problems rather than support many undertakings, and that it should primarily devote its interest to fundamental aspects of health, of sickness, and of methods for the relief of suffering. To these ends the Foundation might give preference in the use of this fund to integrating functions in medical sciences and medical education for which there seems to be particular need in our age of specialization and technical complexities. The Foundation will take more interest in the architecture of ideas than in the architecture of buildings and laboratories.” Until 1945, the Foundation focused its grantmaking on medical research in such fields as traumatic shock and war-related psychiatric disorders, geriatrics and aging, arteriosclerosis, genetics and human development, and psychosomatic medicine. The Foundation’s extensive conference and publication program was also started during this period. From the end of World War II through the mid-1960s, the Foundation shifted its focus to support the efforts of medical schools to expand and strengthen their basic science faculties. During that time, the Foundation also began supporting the emerging fields of basic reproductive biology, human reproduction, and family planning, and fostered their incorporation into the biological, behavioral, and social science bases of academic obstetrics and gynecology. Since the mid-1970s, the overwhelming majority of the Foundation’s grants have supported projects that broaden and improve medical and health professional education. Today, it is the only national foundation solely dedicated to improving the education of health professionals.
