Membership of the AANMS is open to nuclear medicine specialists, trainee specialists (registrars), and other medical specialists with an active interest in nuclear medicine.

Becoming a member of the AANMS means you are joining with your professional colleagues in supporting your professional association in maintaining a strong specialty, with appropriate recognition and benefits for all nuclear medicine specialists and their patients.

The AANMS is the ONLY professional organisation dedicated to working for the benefit of nuclear medicine specialists and their patients.

The AANMS is the key nuclear medicine organisation dealing with professional, quality, economic and workforce issues relevant to nuclear medicine, and as such, it is important for all nuclear medicine specialists to be active members.

Membership is available in a number of categories:

Trainee Membership: for any person who has commenced, but not completed, the CJCT’s Advanced Training in Nuclear Medicine Program. Upon completion of training, Trainee Members will be transferred automatically to full Membership and will be eligible for election to Fellowship (subject to taking up financial membership of the AANMS).

Full Membership:  for those specialists who have completed advanced training in nuclear medicine, or other specialists whose experience and current work in the specialty is considered of an equivalent standard.  Fellowship may be conferred on eligible Members of the Association; the use of the postnominals, “FAANMS” is contingent upon the Fellow maintaining financial membership of the AANMS each year.

Overseas Membership: conferred on those specialists otherwise considered eligible for Fellowship/Membership, but who have permanent or temporary residence overseas.

Semi-Retired Membership: for Fellows who have permanently moved to part time – less than 0.5 FTE – and have been full fee paying Fellows for more than 15 years

Retired Fellowship: for AANMS Fellows who have permanently retired from active clinical practice in nuclear medicine.

Life Membership:  conferred on a medical specialist who has in the determination of the Board, made outstanding contributions to the Association and/or the specialty of Nuclear Medicine during their membership.


There is no fee for application, and applications for Membership/Fellowship may be submitted at any time.

Applications are considered at meetings of the AANMS Board, which meets four to six times per year, at which times the Board also considers the recommendations for election to Fellowship made by the AANMS Fellowship Committee.

If you have any queries, please contact the AANMS Secretariat.
