Will Ross, MD, MPH, Alumni Endowed Professor of Medicine, Nephrology, and Associate Dean for Diversity at Washington University School of Medicine, was inducted into the Academy of Fellows of the Society for Academic Continuing Medical Education (SACME) at their 2022 annual meeting, which was held virtually February 21-23, 2022.

The SACME Academy of Fellows recognizes international leaders in medical education, continuing medical education (CME) and continuous professional development (CPD) for their long-term contributions to the field.

The fellows serve as a “think tank” to define important trends for the future, to shape the direction of the CME/CPD field, and proactively address a range of national and international imperatives through innovation and creativity.  They also provide mentorship to aspiring leaders in the field of medical education, in particular CME/CPD.  View all Academy Members here.

“It will be an honor to serve with an international group of scholars working on pressing issues in medical education.  I hope to focus my time addressing the ‘hidden curriculum’ by reducing racial bias among faculty in the medical encounter.”
