Bothmer Appointed to Council of Academic Societies

Jim Bothmer, associate vice president for Health Sciences and director of the Health Sciences Library, was appointed to the Council of Academic Societies (CAS). The Council of Academic Societies is one of three leadership councils of the Association of Academic Medical Centers (AAMC), along with the Council of Deans (COD) and the Council of Teaching Hospitals and Health Systems (COTH). The CAS is presently comprised of nearly 90 academic societies devoted to biomedical and behavioral research, medical education, and patient care. Bothmer will represent the Association of Academic Health Sciences Libraries on the CAS. The CAS is a forum for discussing and exchanging information of common interest to medical school faculty and for evaluating and recommending policy initiatives to the AAMC.
