ASTRO announces 2011 Fellows class
Date:7/19/2011

The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) has named its 2011 class of Fellows. These 21 distinguished members will receive their Fellow designation at a ceremony during the Society's 53rd Annual Meeting being held October 2-6, 2011, at the Miami Beach Convention Center in Miami Beach, Fla.

"ASTRO Fellows are some of the most revered and accomplished members of the radiation oncology community and receiving this distinction is a great honor for them," Leonard Gunderson, MD, MS, FASTRO, ASTRO President and Emeritus Professor and Consultant in Radiation Oncology at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona, said. "Congratulations to this year's class."

Members of ASTRO are eligible to become a Fellow if they have been part of the Society for at least 15 years, have given significant service to ASTRO and have made a significant contribution to the field of radiation oncology. The primary pathways to becoming a Fellow are excellence in research, patient care, education and leadership/service. The Society values contributions to all four areas; however, each nominee needed to have a truly outstanding contribution to at least one of the pathways to be named a Fellow.

The nominations were reviewed by the nine-member Fellows Selection Committee who made recommendations to the ASTRO Board of Directors.
