What is the Fellowship of the CAR (FCAR)?
The FCAR is one of the highest honours that the CAR can bestow upon its members.
Recognition as a Fellow of the CAR demonstrates a history of service to the Association and the profession of radiology as a whole. The Fellowship of the CAR Award (FCAR) working group created the award program in 2018 out of a need to recognize scientific and professional accomplishments and volunteer leadership and service. The program takes its context from the current CAR recognition and awards programs (CAR Gold Medal Award, CAR Distinguished Career Achievement Award and the CAR Young Investigator Award).
As an active Fellow, recipients join a very distinct and selective group of radiologists who have distinguished themselves in the field. In recognition of this accomplishment, after the Fellowship honour is granted, the recipient is able to place “FCAR” after their name. Including the initials “FCAR” among one’s credentials underscores the meeting of high standards designated by our national specialist organization. The recipient is also given a special pin to wear depicting the FCAR symbol.
Accepting the Fellow of the CAR Award
In accordance with CAR policy, a candidate is not a Fellow without attending the convocation ceremony. The 2018 FCAR Convocation Ceremony will be held on Saturday, April 28, at 5pm in conjunction with the CAR 2018 Awards Ceremony at Le Centre Sheraton, Montreal. Registration for the CAR Annual Scientific Meeting is not required to accept the award at the convocation ceremony. All candidates are welcome to have one guest accompany them during the ceremony.
Deferring the Fellowship of the CAR Award
In the event a candidate is unable to attend the convocation ceremony, the fellowship may be deferred until the following year.
