Fellowship is considered the highest grade of membership for most professional societies. The path to Fellowship is varied; however, it typically involves evidence of continued formal training post-qualification and evidence of substantial achievement in, or contribution to, the profession.

What is ASMIRT Fellowship?

An ASMIRT Fellow is a member who resides in Australia, has been a member for not less than five years and has undertaken a structured program of additional professional activities. These activities are independently assessed and represent knowledge of and work to the highest standard in the medical radiation professions. Fellowship of ASMIRT is a professional qualification and is the highest category of membership.

Why would I want to become a Fellow?

The vast majority of people who undertake Fellowship find immense personal satisfaction in achieving this very significant goal. While becoming a Fellow is not gaining an academic qualification, the personal learning guarantees previously not explored applications to the practical work situation.

A Fellow is therefore recognised by their peers as someone who has extra to contribute and is operating at the peak of the profession.

What does it take to reach Fellowship?

To attain Fellowship a member must complete requirements set by the ASMIRT Board of Directors. A member satisfies these requirements by the points accrual method. This includes a variety of activities that are assessed separately, with each activity attracting points. A total of 100 points is required to achieve Fellowship.

The Fellowship panel

The Fellowship Panel advises the Board of Directors in all aspects in relation to Fellowship.
