"The fellowship provides talented, early career health science scholars the opportunity to participate actively in the work of the IOM and further their careers as future leaders in the field," notes an announcement. "Each Fellow is assigned to an IOM member who will serve as a senior mentor during the two-year fellowship. Through the experience, Fellows will learn from a variety of experts and perspectives, including government officials, industry leaders, executives of voluntary health organizations, scientists, and other health professionals."

Dr. Glickman is an assistant professor of emergency medicine at the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill and a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Physician Faculty Scholar.

After graduating from DePauw, where he majored in biological sciences, Glickman received a degree from the University of Pennsylvania's School of Medicine, and completed residency training in emergency medicine at the University of Chicago Hospital.
