About the ASA

ASA Fellows

In 2016 the ASA Fellowship program was established 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.

Update on 2021 Fellowship Induction

We can confirm the ASA will be inducting Fellows this year, however, due to the unpredictability of the COVID situation, the ASA will not be hosting them as a face-to-face Awards Breakfast or a Gala Dinner at the ASA2021 Brisbane Conference. Current venue social distancing restrictions would result in functions that would not do the awards justice.

Therefore the induction of Fellows, along with the Awards of Excellence recipients and the Pru Pratten Memorial Lifetime Achievement Award, will now be announced at the ASA Awards Evening, on Saturday 29 May, 6.00–7.00 PM. Delegates attending face to face in Brisbane will be invited to a cocktail style function and the awards ceremony will be livestreamed for all delegates who register for the virtual option of the ASA2021 Brisbane Conference.

To ensure new Fellows receive the recognition they deserve we will be encouraging those who are not in attendance at Brisbane to host watch parties with their colleagues as well as their family and friends. Further details will be coming soon with information about how delegates can win ASA hampers for this event. 

Associate Fellowship

Becoming an Associate Fellow of the ASA is recognition of a sonographer's achievement and service in the profession by the Australasian Sonographers Association. 

Awarded in recognition of professional excellence, an Associate Fellowship is held for the duration of membership with the ASA and entitles the member to use the post-nominal lettering 'AFASA'.
