Honors Committee Input

The Deadline for submitting candidates for the committee's consideration for 2018 awards has now passed - September 22, 2017 

The three most recent SPR Past Presidents form the SPR Honors Committee. The most senior past president serves as committee chair. The Honors Committee selects the Gold medalist, the Honorary Member, the Pioneer Awardee and the Singleton/Taybi Awardee. 

  • Gold medal: awarded to a member who has made outstanding contributions to the care of children, to pediatric radiology, and to our society
  • Honorary membership; conferred on an individual who has made an outstanding contribution to the care of children through scientific innovations which impact pediatric radiology. Usually, this is a person not otherwise eligible for membership in the society.
  • The Pioneer Awardee is an individual whose work has had a significant impact on the way pediatric radiology is practiced or perceived. The award is given to recognize early and significant contributions to our specialty and Society.
  • Singleton/Taybi Award is given to a member who best exemplifies dedication to, and achievement of, the educational goals of the SPR.

The member input process will reopen for the 2019 awards in the summer of 2018.
