Tod Ibrahim, ASN executive vice president, has been named president of the Council of Medical Specialty Societies (CMSS). His term took effect in November 2019.
“CMSS is uniquely positioned to help address pressing clinical topics, research-related issues, and educational topics common to its members,” Ibrahim said. “There is an opportunity to think creatively across specialties, and that was really appealing to me.”
Founded in 1965, CMSS provides an independent forum for the discussion by medical specialists of issues of national interest and mutual concern. The organization currently has 46 national medical society members representing more than 800,000 physicians.
