The National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine

HMD’s new web address is part of the Academies’ continuing efforts regarding our recent organizational changes. As a reminder, on March 15, 2016, the Academies division that focuses on health and medicine was renamed the Health and Medicine Division instead of using the name Institute of Medicine. This new name builds on the heritage of the IOM’s work in medicine while emphasizing its increased focus on a wider range of health matters. With this change, HMD is now fully integrated into the broader work of the Academies and will continue to conduct consensus studies and convening activities through the six core boards that were part of the IOM. This integration results from organizational changes that took place in July 2015, at which time the National Academy of Medicine (NAM) joined the National Academy of Sciences and the National Academy of Engineering as the third academy overseeing the program units of the Academies. The NAM has assumed the membership and honorific functions previously held by the IOM, as well as the administration of other activities and initiatives.
