One of the highest honors the ACR can bestow on a radiologist, radiation oncologist or medical physicist is recognition as a fellow of the American College of Radiology. ACR Fellows demonstrate a history of service to the College, organized radiology, teaching, or research. Approximately 10% of ACR members achieve this distinction. The achievement of Fellowship is a result of nomination in accordance with the Bylaws, meeting the qualifications of the Committee on Fellowship Credentials and election to Fellowship by the Board of Chancellors of the ACR. In addition to the general qualification of “outstanding contributions and service to radiology,” more specific nomination guidelines include:
Service and participation in the Society is one of the major ways those interested in becoming a Fellow can enhance their application. The Virginia Radiological Society is supportive of starting the application process for those who meet the qualifications and is interested in helping to guide those who aspire to obtain Fellowship Degree.
To learn more about becoming a Fellow of the American College of Radiology, contact Lara Knowles, Society Coordinator, at 804-622-8137 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The ACR Fellowship process has moved completely paperless. This new online nomination form will help streamline the entire process.
Please note, applications for award of fellowship at the 2022 ACR Meeting must be submitted by June 15, 2021 for review by the Virginia Radiological Society Fellowship Committee.
