Fellow of ERS (FERS)

The Fellow of ERS award recognises excellence in contributions to research, education and clinical leadership in respiratory medicine from amongst the ERS membership.

The award brings together members who have excelled in their field to form an elite advisory board that will be called upon by the Society on various matters in future years. It also provides recognition to those leaders in the field by entitling all selected Fellows to use the designation 'FERS' after their name.

Up to 50 Fellows are selected each year based on their previous research records (h-index) and outstanding contributions to respiratory medicine (including clinical contributions).

Members can apply by completing the application form and submitting it to fellows@ersnet.org, or you may nominate a peer using the nomination form. Please note that the 2020 call for candidates is now closed.
