The Core Committee
The core committee is responsible for the day-to-day activities of the ANMB; arranging venues of the exam and funds for the fellowship, inviting faculty and implementing changes that have been suggested by candidates and fellows, and approved by the faculty.
The core committee, just like everything else at the ANMB, has evolved. The first core committee comprised of Profs. Jun Hatazawa (Japan), Henry Bom (Korea). Theo San Luis (Philipines) and Durr-e-Sabih (Pakistan). After several preliminary meetings (please see the timeline of evolution at the home page) it was decided to meet with the ENMB faculty and observe the FENMB exam. It was Vienna in 2013 that the outline of the ANMB was finally crystallized.
Observers from the ENMB faculty were invited to the first ANMB exam in Osaka in 2014. Since then the ANMB has gone from strength to strength.
Prof. Theo San Luis (Far left in this picture) retired from the ANMB in 2017.
