Historical Note

The NIH Clinical Center Medical Board first met on January 6, 1953, at which time the Organization Committee defined the Board's function as a body "responsible for developing policies which will assure the maintenance of the highest standards of medical care in the Clinical Center. These policies, when approved by the Director of the National Institutes of Health, shall become operating policies of the Clinical Center." Board members, initially fourteen in number, included one representative from each Institute and six others nominated by the Medical Board and the Director of the Clinical Center. Appointments were made by the Director of NIH and ran for one-year terms. By 1987 Board membership had increased to twenty.
