The achievement of Fellow is an honorary designation used for the purpose of recognizing the outstanding and meritorious contributions made by an individual to a professional society. The AAMD Fellows program was developed, approved by the Board of Directors, and implemented in 2008 - 2009 with the elevation of the first Fellow in 2010. To become a Fellow, one must demonstrate a commitment to the AAMD and the profession.  This is accomplished by submitting documentation in the pillars of: Leadership/Service, Research, Patient Care, and Education.

Those who are interested in becoming a Fellow can find assistance from the Fellows Committee and the AAMD Education and Research Foundation. For those Certified Medical Dosimetrists who are early in their careers, the Fellow application can be utilized to identify and work toward future career goals. The application can be found at
