ACNM 45th President’s Message

 

We are reenergized from our Board meeting in San Diego, with continued focus on our mission:

“ACNM’s mission is to foster the highest standards in Nuclear Medicine consultation and service to referring physicians, hospitals, and the public, advance the science of Nuclear Medicine through study, education, and improvement of the socioeconomic aspects of the practice of Nuclear Medicine and thereby to improve Nuclear Medicine consultation and service and to promote the continuing competence and socioeconomic awareness of practitioners of Nuclear Medicine through a program of continuing professional development emphasizing high standards of Nuclear Medicine practice.”

We remain on target for 2017 in Phoenix where we will offer a full two-day program, with an extended Thursday scientific session in partnership with the Chinese Society of Nuclear Medicine. Friday we will offer a practical review course and a session addressing nuclear medicine training and practice issues.

As we expand our international partnerships with China and Turkey, Zvi Bar-Sever representing the Israeli Society of Nuclear Medicine and I signed a memorandum-of -understanding for the ACNM to work together with the ISNM with the goal of enhancing the practice of nuclear medicine and molecular imaging through the study, education, and improvement of clinical practice and to facilitate cross cultural exchange.

NMRO has held elections and the NMRO Board of Directors is scheduling a series of meetings focused on enhancing the core agenda of education and careers. NMRO and ACNM is collaborating with the SNMMI and ABNM to respond to the issues presented by the ABR and ABNM proposal of 2015.

Among the recently created educational ACNM activities, monthly webinars and IMAIOS activities are continuing, the first set of ACNM MRI Cases are currently in release, and ACNM will be partnering with ABNM for the creation of innovative MOC content.

Our journal, Clinical Nuclear Medicine celebrated 40 years of publication in June. With a new impact factor of 4.278, Clinical Nuclear Medicine ranks 14 of 125 radiology journals and is number 3 among all nuclear medicine journals!

All of this activity requires adequate funding. While like most professional colleges, most of the working capital comes from membership dues, execution of our ACNM mission is strongly linked to donations to the College through the Education and Research Foundation for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (ERF). Properly managed, we will achieve our mission in a fiscally responsible manner.

I remain grateful to serve as your president,

Patrick M Colletti MD
ACNM President
