The honorary category of Fellow is bestowed upon members who have made outstanding contributions to the medical dosimetry profession and to the AAMD. This category was developed within the AAMD to honor members who were dedicated to the organization and whose contributions to the profession were meritorious. Members elevated to Fellow earn the right to use the designation "FAAMD" following their professional credentials.
The AAMD values contributions to all four areas, however each nominee needs to have a truly outstanding contribution to at least one of the four pathways to be named Fellow.
AAMD Fellows will be inducted at a convocation ceremony at the AAMD Annual Meeting. Fellows will be acknowledged at the meeting and on the Fellows page on the website, and will be awarded a distinctive medallion and lapel pin.
To apply to be elevated to Fellow status, a candidate must contact the current chair of the AAMD Fellows Advisory Group, and together they will select a current Fellow to act as his/her Sponsor. Once the application is submitted, it is forwarded to the members of the Fellows Committee for evaluation. Upon completion of a thorough review for compliance with the established criteria, the committee may recommend (to the Board of Directors) elevation to this prestigious level. Candidates not meeting the criteria on the initial attempt may reapply.
