David Asprey Selected to Serve on Institute of Medicine Graduate Medical Education Committee

David Asprey, PhD, PA-C, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs and Chair of the Department of Physician Assistant Studies and Services, has been selected to serve on the Institute of Medicine (IOM) Committee on the Governance and Financing of Graduate Medical Education (GME). This committee has been convened to assess and review GME and make recommendations on its modification. Dr. Asprey participated in a planning meeting at the IOM in April of this year. The April meeting was the result of a call by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation and the Association of Academic Health Centers for "an independent external review of the governance and financing of GME" and specifically suggesting that the IOM perform this review. We are pleased that Dr. Asprey has been selected for such a prestigious undertaking.
