The Associated Press has reported that President Barack Obama will nominate Jim Yong Kim, M.D. '91, Ph.D. '93, as the next president of the World Bank (a post for which Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Eliot University Professor Lawrence H. Summers, a former Secretary of the Treasury and Harvard's president from 2001 to 2006, had been rumored as candidates). Kim, a co-founder with Kolokotrones University Professor of global health and social medicine Paul Farmer of Partners In Health, became president of Dartmouth College on July 1, 2009. There, drawing on his background at the World  Health Organization and Partners in Health, he made global health a new institutional priority.

The New York Times covers the nomination here.
