Awards and recognition
The Awards of Excellence were introduced in 2011 as a way to recognise and honour outstanding achievements in sonography and reward their excellence, best practice and contributions to sonography. All recipients are inspirations, shining lights of our profession for others to look up to and hopefully what future sonographers aspire to.
The ASA Fellowship program was established in 2016 to recognise members whose outstanding level of sustained commitment has made a significant contribution to the sonography profession and the ASA. Fellowship is the highest grade of membership for professional associations. The titles of 'Fellow' and 'Associate Fellow' are conferred upon ASA Accredited Medical Sonographer Members who meet the entry requirements.
In 2019, the prestigious Pru Pratten Memorial Award was renamed to The Pru Pratten Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award, and recognises a member's significant contributions to the profession and the ASA over their entire career.
