Welcome to Women in Nuclear Medicine webpage!

The WIN committee was created to promote nuclear medicine and molecular imaging for SNMMI women physicians and scientists. We also hope to  foster the development of professional interests, address problems encountered in the practice of nuclear medicine, promote leadership and career development in women, raise awareness of scientific contributions of women in nuclear medicine, recognize the challenges of balancing career and family, promoting fair and equitable treatment, and improve the climate for women in nuclear medicine at all stages of their careers. We want to network and support each other. Many international women members have participated in our programming. We currently have a web based book club, as well as a Twitter account, where we try to publish the achievements of our members as well as interesting news about career development and opportunities. We have activities /programming at our meetings.  The Curie Fund was founded under the ERF (Education and Research Foundation) umbrella and is dedicated to raising funds to support the education and programming of women in nuclear medicine into leadership positions. 

We hope the formation of the WINM committee will  allow SNMMI women to have useful continuing education programs and networking opportunities to enhance both their professional and personal lives. Judging from the interest and enthusiasm shown by attendance at the WINM programs ,book clubs and social media so far , I predict we will grow and continue to support women as they continue to make significant and long-lasting contributions to the future of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging.

Curie Award for Women in Leadership

It is critical that women who aspire to leadership positions within their institutions or within the Society gain access to training and networking opportunities that will equip them for the voyage to do so. Several senior women members of the SNMMI have come forward to establish the Curie Women in Leadership Fund to ensure that access to such opportunities is there for the next generation. The Fellowship will fund registration and travel-related costs up to $5,000 for the recipient to attend an appropriate AAMC Leadership Series professional development seminar for early or mid-career women faculty with clear potential for advancement to a major administrative position and/or leadership within a professionally related society such as the SNMMI.  Once we identify a candidate we want to support, she must then apply to the AAMC through its website. There is a chance that the winner chosen by ERF may not be chosen by the AAMC to attend the seminar, in which case other similar opportunities will be sought out by ERF.  

Eligibility - Applicant must have been a member of SNMMI for at least one year prior to application.  Current or past membership on an SNMMI (or similar organization) Committee is favorable, but not required.

Contact information - For further information, ERF may please email of contact us at Phone: 402.507.5125 or  Direct: 402.507.5127.

Applications for this award are now closed and will open again in 2017.
