At the AAMC, Nivet provides strategic vision and programmatic leadership on issues surrounding community engagement, workforce and student diversity and health equity at universities, medical schools and teaching hospitals across the United States and Canada. He has spent over 20 years in academic medicine developing creative program initiatives and innovative solutions that have helped universities and their academic health centers accelerate efforts to realize their mission of excellence in research, education and patient care.

Nivet is a fellow of the New York Academy of Medicine and a former president of the National Association of Medical Minority Educators.  He currently serves the academic medicine community on a variety of boards and commissions. He is a member of the NIH National Advisory General Medical Sciences Council (NIGMS), HRSA Bureau of Health Professions National Advisory Council on Nurse Education and Practice, the CDC Medical College Roundtable and is an advisor to the ETS Policy Evaluation and Research Council. He is a trustee of both the Arnold P. Gold Foundation and the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of the Health Professions.

Nivet earned his doctorate in higher education management from the University of Pennsylvania and his masters’ degree in business administration with a focus on health care management from George Washington University’s School of Business.

One hour of Continuing Medical Education credit is available, and a limited number of lunches will be provided for attendees on a first-come, first-served basis.
