Lifetime Achievement Award

The Credentials Committee selects the nominee each year whose lifetime achievements (scholarly, clinical, educational, institutional or public service) have made the greatest contributions to both the field of nephrology and to the Indian Society of Nephrology’s constituents (doctors, paramedical personnel, patients).

The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented annually to an Indian nephrologist for specific accomplishments that are truly extraordinary, widely recognized as such, and are of positive and lasting quality. Recognition can be granted to a nephrologist of Indian nationality for activities within any theoretical framework for a wide range of areas relating to the field of kidney disease in any part of the India, including but not limited to research or education. 

Any member of the Indian Society of Nephrology (ISN) may submit nominations for this award. Nominees must be members of the ISN at the time of their nomination, and the strongest nominees will have made significant contributions to both the ISN and to the range of activities in which ISN members participate. Nomination letters should include a letter of nomination, outlining the nominee’s lifetime accomplishments, as well as a curriculum vitae of the nominee. Additional letters of support are not required, but would be helpful for the Committee’s deliberations. Nominators are required to collate all nomination materials into one single Adobe Acrobat pdf document to be emailed to the ISN Secretariat at indsocnephrol@gmail.com.

The Credentials Committee members can also consider suitable candidates for such award. Each member would look at suitable candidates in their regions.
