Professional Lifetime Achievement Award

ACCES has an award category called the ACCES Clinical Engineering Professional Lifetime Achievement Award. The purpose of this award is to recognize a Clinical Engineering Professional in the Atlantic Canada clinical engineering community who, through their outstanding commitment and dedication during their career, has made significant contributions to the advancement of our biomedical profession.

The recipient will be selected by the ACCES Board of Directors and the presentation of the award will be made, if possible, at the following ACCES Conference. Travel expenses, accommodations and conference fees will be provided to the award recipient for him/her to attend that conference as well. In addition, the recipient’s name will be put forward by ACCES as a candidate for the following CMBES National Award.

The Lifetime Achievement Award is not an annual award; rather it is a special recognition award to be granted to a recipient as deemed deserving by the ACCESS Board of Directors. Please note that a potential candidate for this award can also be nominated by a member of the Atlantic Canada Clinical Engineering Community. When a recipient has been chosen for this award it will be announced on this website and also communicated to the Atlantic Canada Clinical community.

The ACCES Clinical Engineering Professional of the Year Award will be presented annually to a member of the Biomedical Community in Atlantic Canada.

Potential candidates for consideration should include Clinical and Biomedical Engineering Technologists, Technicians and Engineers employed in the Atlantic Canada clinical community who have been nominated by their peers.
