AAMI Fellows plaques ready to be presented to the 2019 AAMI Fellows.

The AAMI Fellow Program, which recognizes individuals who have provided substantial service and contributions to AAMI and to the health technology field, is now seeking applicants for 2021.

“2020 has been a difficult year, but it was also one where many health technology professionals rose to the occasion,” said Sabrina Reilly, vice president of membership at AAMI. “We’re recognizing professionals who have proven their commitment to AAMI’s mission of leading global collaboration in the development, management, and use of safe and effective health technology.”

Individuals who attain AAMI Fellow status are distinguished for the depth and breadth of their accomplishments in six areas: professional experience, education, presentations and publications, professional participation, certification, technical contributions, awards/honors, and community service – as well as the quality of their processional statement and two letters of recommendation.

Prospective AAMI Fellows may self-nominate online.

The following documents must be submitted no later than 5:00 p.m. ET, Friday, January 22, 2021.

  • Résumé or CV

  • Two letters of reference, one of which must be from a current AAMI member

  • A personal statement of no more than 1,000 words

  • A one-time, nonrefundable fee of $100

All Fellows receive an AAMI Fellow certificate and a commemorative pin, as well as recognition at the 2021 AAMI Exchange (June 4–7 in Charlotte, NC), in AAMI publications, and on social media.

Any questions about the application process should be send to aamifellow@aami.org.
