Honorary Fellowship

Honorary Fellowship is the most prestigious award available to a non-Fellow of the College and as such will be awarded to non-Fellows of the College who have made exceptional contributions to, or promoted the interests of, clinical oncology or clinical radiology, anywhere in the world.

Honorary Fellowship is intended to recognise work which has furthered the development of imaging (including image-guided intervention) or oncology for the ultimate benefit of patients. This might be through, for example, research, development of new technologies and techniques, service improvements, education or public health – but this list is not exhaustive. Recipients need not be radiologists or oncologists themselves, and any radiologists or oncologists to be nominated would normally be expected to be working outside the UK.

It is not intended to recognise work which has primarily contributed to the activities of the RCR.

Any Fellow of the College may submit a nomination to the Honours Committee, which should consist of their nominee's CV and a brief statement indicating the reasons for the nomination.

Self-nominations are not permitted.

Not more than three Honorary Fellowships may be awarded annually.
