Presidents Message

ACNM 45th President’s Message

 

We are fresh from the energy generated at our Orlando meeting. As in other professional colleges, the ACNM has created a new cap and gown regalia tradition to honor our present and new fellows. Such traditions, including honoring past presidents enhance the satisfaction we have with our College.

Once again we presented an outstanding scientific and educational program. Our target for 2017 in Phoenix is to 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. In parallel, we will also partner with the Correlative Imaging Council to once again deliver CT and MRI experience to our attendees.

We will expand our international partnerships with China and Turkey, and beyond. As NMRO gets back to basics, we will enhance our communications and collaborations with international residents while focusing on career opportunities for all, as we collaborate with the SNMMI and ABNM to respond to the issues leading to the ABR and ABNM proposal of 2015.

Among the recently created educational ACNM activities, monthly webinars will continue and the continued development of education content will be championed by ACNM 43rd President Twyla Bartel.

Our journal, Clinical Nuclear Medicine celebrates 40 years of publication in June. With an impact factor of 3.931, Clinical Nuclear Medicine ranks 15 of 125 radiology journals.

All of this activity requires adequate funding. While like most professional colleges, most of the working capital comes from membership dues; ACNM 44th President Rathan Subramaniam has, with the support of our board and with help of the Education and Research Foundation for Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (ERF), demonstrated that it is possible to generate donor support for our mission. With all of this, we will achieve our mission in a fiscally responsible manner.

I am grateful to serve as your president,

Patrick M Colletti MD
ACNM President
