As a multidisciplinary organization, the AIUM clearly recognizes the importance and value of all ultrasound professionals. However, to recognize individuals who have demonstrated substantial accomplishments in the field of ultrasound, the AIUM established two unique membership categories.
Senior Members—In addition to other criteria, this category requires three consecutive years of AIUM General Membership at the time of application.
Fellows—In addition to other criteria, this category requires at least five consecutive years of AIUM General Membership, including at least two years of Senior Membership at the time of application.
Please note that although all AIUM members who have been general members for at least three consecutive years are eligible to apply for senior status, designation as a senior member is not automatic; indeed, only a small percentage of members meet all the requirements.
