Finding the brightest and best, celebrating their achievements and harnessing their expertise for the benefit of wider society is central to our role as a National Academy.
Excellent medical science and medical scientists are the key to breakthroughs in preventing and treating ill health and they underpin the UK’s contribution to the international science endeavour. Recognising and promoting excellence in medical science therefore lies at the heart of all our work.
Our annual election of Fellows is the cornerstone of our work and our Fellows are central to all our work. Each year we elect around 45 new Fellows, who represent the UK’s leaders in medical research and healthcare. FMedSci is internationally known as a mark of esteem and achievement in medical science, and is recognised by research funders, journals, and higher education institutions, as well as by policymakers, the media and the public.
