IPEM Fellows are an increasingly diverse group with something in common, they have distinguished themselves within their field. By attaining your FIPEM post-nominal you will benefit from enhanced professional recognition within the IPEM global community and across the wider fields of science and medicine. You will help us make the key decisions that will shape both IPEM and the wider professions we represent. In 2023 you can stand for election as President and help lead IPEM into the future.
