ISPE has created a special elected category of membership for its outstanding leadership. Fellowship status is awarded upon election as Fellow by the Board on the recommendation of a committee of peers (the Fellowship & Awards Committee). Elected members are designated 'ISPE Fellows' (FISPE). Consideration for election to Fellowship is open to those members who are recognized as having leadership roles in pharmacoepidemiology and who are held in high professional standing.
Upon achievement of Fellow status, Fellows are entitled to:
Fellows must meet or exceed all of the following:
*The review committee will take into account any restriction on publication due to the nature of a candidate's employment when assessing the evidence for scholarship.
**It is essential that you clearly, and in great detail, explain your contributions to the Society. Your response to this section must identify any and all volunteer/leadership positions you've held in the organization and when you served and in what capacity. Please assume that the review committee will not be aware of your contributions to the organization. Examples of service may include committee/RIG/SIG/chapter chair/member, abstract reviewer, course faculty, mentor, etc.
The Fellowship and Awards Committee will consider all completed applications received and submits its recommendations to the ISPE Board of Directors for consideration at the Board’s April meeting. Applicants will be notified of the Board’s decision thereafter. All applications approved for FISPE status will be inducted at the next Annual Meeting.
The application process is organized only online (link at the top of this page) and applications are not accepted by other means. Only recommendation letters through this online form will be accepted. Please have your CV ready for upload when you start your application.
