Seniors

Current Senior Members

Senior Application Process

As a multidisciplinary organization, the AIUM clearly recognizes the importance and value of all ultrasound professionals—scientists, sonographers, and sonologists—in ensuring the appropriate and safe use of this unique imaging modality. However, to recognize individuals who have demonstrated substantial accomplishments in the field of ultrasound, the AIUM established the category of senior member.

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.

Qualifications

Physicians, Sonographers/Technologists, Scientists, and Others
  • Three consecutive years of participation as an AIUM General Member at the time of application
  • Five years of experience in ultrasound
  • AIUM organizational participation
  • Demonstration of substantial accomplishment in at least 1 of the following areas as it relates to ultrasound
    • scientific investigation
    • sustained teaching
  • Two letters of recommendation from current AIUM senior (view current list) or fellow (view current list) members

  • Two letters of recommendation from current AIUM senior (view current list) or fellow (view current list) members
  • One letter of recommendation from AIUM leadership (including AIUM CEO, current committee chairs, or current Executive Committee or Board of Governors members)

Application Process

An announcement is made in the fall of every year, that senior membership application will be accepted for those who meet the above criteria. Applications and associated materials are reviewed by the AIUM membership committee and recommendations are forwarded to the Board of Governors for approval. Applicants will be notified of their status following the Board of Governors meeting by late spring. Applicants who are not approved as senior members will receive letters detailing which of the criteria they did not meet. Once the criterion or criteria have been met, applicants may reapply in subsequent years, without payment of an additional application-processing fee.
