Distinguished Fellow - A Prestigious Distinction
ASAM and the Board of Directors recognize these elite professionals as "Distinguished Fellows" due to their significant contributions to the field of addiction medicine, and work as outstanding, prominent, and distinguished professionals in the medical community. These professionals have been "uniquely" singled out for special distinction within the field. The application will be available Fall 2017.
Authorized members may employ the DFASAM designation after their names as a mark of distinction and to provide a description of their unique position. The designation represents "Distinguished Fellow, American Society of Addiction Medicine."
Distinguished Fellows are chosen based upon an outstanding and long sustained demonstration of top-ranking competence in the field of addiction medicine, exceptional professionalism, consummate integrity, demonstrated service, significant contribution, and noted leadership.
