SNMMI Fellowship Program

The purpose of the SNMMI Fellowship Program is to recognize members of SNMMI for their service to the Society and for their outstanding contributions to the field of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging. SNMMI Fellowship is one of the most prestigious formal recognitions available to long-time SNMMI members and symbolizes distinguished service to SNMMI, as well as exceptional achievement in the field of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging.

Fellowship is bestowed upon only a small percentage of SNMMI members, and the Society aims to preserve the honor associated with being recognized as an SNMMI Fellow.
