Each year the association elects members of distinction as new ATA Fellows. Election to the American Telemedicine Association College of Fellows is a high honor that recognizes significant achievements in telemedicine, service to the general telemedicine community, and service to ATA.
In order to be considered for election to Fellowship, the following requirements must be met:
- A minimum of eight years of membership (student, regular, institutional, corporate) in ATA;
- Significant contributions to the field of telemedicine; and
- Service to the American Telemedicine Association (e.g., SIG/Chapter leadership, SIG/Chapter Member, or Committee membership).
A committee composed of members of the College of Fellows determines election to the Fellowship. Nominations, review and committee selection of fellows takes place each spring, prior to the ATA Annual Meeting.
