Nicholas Outterside Medallion
Awarded to members who have significantly contributed to ASMIRT over many years.

Nicholas Outterside began his career in radiography in Sydney in 1926 and soon saw the need for a corporate body for the profession. During the 1940’s he did much to consolidate the work and interest of radiographers and, elected by his fellows, became the first President of the then Australasian Institute of Radiography (now the Australian Society of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy) on its incorporation in February 1950.

Through his pioneering and industrious endeavours, the Institute (now Society) was built on a firm foundation as it progressed through to a mature professional body. 

In 1981 it was suggested that a National Award be given annually in memory of Nicholas Outterside. This would be in the form of a Medallion, to be awarded at the discretion of the AIR (now ASMIRT) Board. No recipient of the Nicholas Outterside Medallion would be considered for a second award except under exceptional circumstances. e.g. for an exceptional discovery, invention, etc.

Conditions of the Award:
1. Each Branch or Sub Branch Committee may submit to the ASMIRT Board of Directors each year the name of one member, or Fellow or other worthy person who has:
a) contributed materially over many years to the service of the Society and its Members:
b) by example to, and in the training of radiographers / radiation therapists, upheld, passed on and added to the tradition of radiography / radiation therapy over many years:
c) been responsible for the development and publication of outstanding original technique or research in specialised or general radiography, radiation therapy:
d) made remarkable achievements in or outstanding contribution to the art and science of radiography / radiation therapy.
