To become an AHRMM Fellow, candidates must submit a written paper for acceptance by the AHRMM Fellow Review Committee. Papers should describe a new, relevant, cost-effective, innovative, or practical approach or experience in purchasing, materials management, or support services (i.e. developing a new procedure in order to solve a problem, trying a different management approach, etc.) A list of topics has been compiled for consideration by candidates. These topics are only suggestions and candidates are not required to select from this list. Choosing a topic from this list does not guarantee a candidate's approval. Fellow candidates are assigned a mentor from the AHRMM Fellow Review Committee who are available to assist candidates in identifying possible paper topics if requested.
