Welcome to our New Fellows – spring 2019

Monday 20 May 2019

The Admission Ceremony is an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of our New Fellows at the most important ceremonial event in the RCR calendar. On Friday 17 May, we were honoured to welcome over 160 New Fellows who have received the Fellowship of The Royal College of Radiologists (FRCR), as well as approximately 140 admitted in absentia.

We were also pleased to congratulate individuals who have made a remarkable contribution to their professions. This year’s spring ceremony saw the Frank Doyle Medal for clinical oncology awarded to three outstanding candidates in the First FRCR Examination. Our spring 2019 winners are Dr Huo Zheng Daniel Lui, Dr Bar Wai Barry Wo and Dr Henry Chun Yip Wong. The Frank Doyle Medal for Clinical Radiology was awarded to Dr Aaron Ray for his outstanding achievement in the spring 2019 Final FRCR Part A Examination.

The 2019 Gold Medal was presented to Professor David Sebag-Montefiore – the highest honour that can be awarded to a Fellow of the RCR who has made a significant contribution in their field. Professor Sebag-Montefiore is an internationally renowned expert in the holistic multi-modality management of colorectal and anal cancers.

Three individuals who have made notable contributions to clinical radiology or clinical oncology were admitted as Honorary Fellows. Congratulations and welcome to Sir Harpal Kumar, Professor Harold Ellis and Professor Terry Jones. Honorary Fellowship is the highest honour that can be awarded to an individual who is not a Fellow of the RCR.

In recognition of their exceptional service to the RCR, five individuals were presented with the Exceptional Contribution Award. Congratulations to Dr Stephen D’Souza, Professor David Dodwell, Dr Joanna Fairhurst, Dr Richard FitzGerald and Dr Margaret Hourihan.

The RCR is exceedingly thankful to all our guests, New Fellows and speakers who helped make the day such an enjoyable occasion. Special thanks to Hugh Turvey, who concluded the ceremony with a very compelling 63rd Crookshank Lecture entitled ‘An X-ray vision.’ Mr Turvey is an X-ray artist who combines graphic design and photography to bridge the gap between art and science.
