SCBT-MR Fellow Nominations
To be considered for Fellow Membership, a physician or related scientist must meet the following MINIMUM requirements as determined by the Fellow Membership Committee and outlined in the bylaws of SCBT-MR. Candidates who meet these criteria will be presented to the Society for a vote by the fellows, which will occur at the Annual Meeting. Please note that while some candidates may meet the minimum requirements for nomination, that does not guarantee the achievement of Fellowship status.
Below is a list of the minimum requirements to achieve Fellowship status:
1. The candidate will have been a general member in good standing for at least two years before applying and must attend a minimum of one meeting.
2. The candidate must have contributed to the society in a meaningful manner prior to consideration. This can be accomplished by either having served on a committee, having provided educational material to the website, having contributed to an ad hoc initiative (e.g. white paper or ACR consultation) or having been a previous presenter at a recent annual meeting (e.g. scientific session, poster, workshop, round table, or case presentation).
3. Candidates for Fellow Membership must be nominated in writing by TWO Fellow Members.
4. Physicians shall have practiced radiology for at least three years after attainment of Radiology Board Certification and scientists will have held a faculty position for at least three years prior to being considered for Fellow Membership.
5. At least 50% of the physician’s or scientist's time shall be devoted to work in body (chest, cardiovascular, abdominal, pelvic, musculoskeletal) computed tomography and/or magnetic resonance imaging, including, but not limited to, clinical or laboratory work or teaching. Time occupied by administrative or other academic activities may be excluded.
6. The candidate should be employed by, teach in, or maintain an affiliation with an academic department of radiology with a radiology residency program. This requirement may be waived for Fellow Members who work in academic institutions (such as NIH or AFIP) that do not have a residency program.
7. The physician or related scientist must have had a significant role on 10 original (non-review article) peer-reviewed publications on body (as defined in #6 above) computed tomography and/or magnetic resonance imaging or related topics (minimum of 5 of these publications in the last 10 years).
8. Additionally, of these 10 publications, the physician or related scientist must have at least five publications where he/she met the following criteria: the first author, or the second author with a trainee as first author, or the last author, where the latter designation was clearly in a senior author role. These scientific (clinical or laboratory) publications will be published in major refereed journals. Abstracts, case reports, and technical notes are not acceptable to fulfill this requirement.
9. The candidate’s record of scholarly and service contributions should demonstrate leadership (e.g. book chapters, awards, invited lectureships, mentoring, national/international committee chairs, etc.).
10. A copy of the candidate's curriculum vitae must be uploaded with the application.
