Regular Fellows

According to the art. 6 of the Constitution of the IAPM, the regular fellows «are all expert in Perinatal Medicine that have selected based on their international prestige, country of origin and scientific productivity. The aim of this selection process is to represent most parts of the world». The number of regular fellows allowed is limited to 30. All regular fellows sit on the International Council of the IAPM (art. 10).

The three presidents of the promoter society of IAPM (WAPM, EAPM and International Society «The Fetus as a Patient») came to an agreement whereby each society proposed 10 members. This agreement was performed in the previous meeting to the Foundational Ceremony that was held on 25 May 2005, in the moment of signature of documents. The morning of this day, the three presidents signed the CERTIFICATE OF ELECTION OF THE INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL, whereby the 30 regular fellows of the IAPM were named. In the same ceremony another document was signed, named CERTIFICATE OF APPOINTMENT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF IAPM, whereby the composition of the executive commission of the IAPM was established.
