Advisory Board

Our Advisory Board is a group of critical friends representing a range of disciplines and international institutions. They contribute to our work by

  • Commenting on the effectiveness of our vision and mission
  • Providing strategic insight and advice with respect to the activities, infrastructure, development and national and international profile of IMH
  • Connecting us with leading interdisciplinary and international networks in and beyond the medical humanities
  • Taking the role of critical friend and champion for the work of the IMH to ensure that our work is of real benefit

Advisory Board members are appointed by invitation for an initial three-year term.
