It is well established that leadership is demanding and, sometimes, isolating. The JBI Alumni is made up of Fellows and Clinical Fellows of JBI and seeks to establish a strong cadre of evidence based policy and clinical leaders across the world and to provide ongoing support, motivation and development to this important group.

The JBI Fellows Alumni provides ongoing contact and support between Fellows, Clinical Fellows and Institute staff; organises annual symposia, Fellows Dinners and a Fellows Assembly where almost all Fellows meet; and ongoing contact and networking between Fellows.

The JBI Alumni Association

The JBI Alumni Association is run by members of the Alumni and aims to foster the development of evidence based healthcare through sustaining a connected community of clinical leaders devoted to creating collaboration and support for Alumni members to enable them to contribute to good leadership in translating evidence into action in health and social care.


The JBI Alumni is recognized for creating and supporting successful and effective evidence-based leaders in health and social care.
