New criteria for IPEM Fellowship set out

CHANGES have been made to make it clearer what the criteria are to become a Fellow of IPEM.

The Institute’s Board of Trustees agreed at their recent meeting to amend IPEM’s Rules to make it clear what members need to demonstrate to become a Fellow.

Professor Stephen O’Connor, IPEM’s President, said: ‘We are committed to ensuring that no member is excluded from any part of our membership structure.

‘Trustees recently adopted new criteria for Fellowship which better reflects our membership in 2021. Fellows must show a very high standard of scientific achievement as demonstrated by an outstanding contribution in their field.’

Candidates for Fellowship now need to demonstrate their contribution:

  • In at least two of these three topics: ‘research and development’, ‘service development’, ‘service improvement’; and
  • Professional practice in the workplace; and
  • Professional practice through contributions to professional body objectives and achievements nationally or internationally.
