We are thrilled to congratulate Dr. Robert Abraham on his recent election to Corresponding Fellowship status with the SIR Fellows’ Affairs Committee. Dr. Abraham is the only Canadian recipient for 2016.  

Dr. Abraham's enthusiasm and passion for the field of Interventional Radiology are very apparent based on the many ways he has contributed his time, talents and leadership to the ongoing development of the  specialty. SIR colleagues speak very highly of him and appreciate his expertise, contributions to the Society and numerous accomplishments and leadership roles in Canadian IR.

Dr. Abraham has put his efforts into multiple tasks that help advance the specialty of Interventional Radiology and help all of the members of SIR to advance patient care. His leadership in CIRA and in certification of radiologists has led to the advancement of the field in general as well as made a difference in individual lives of patients and interventional radiologists. His dedication to and love of teaching has also led to advances in the field of IR. His research in the field of IR is recognized for the changes and advancements he has helped craft for Interventional Radiology. The future of the specialty depends on this body of work. He has also undertaken collaborative work with SIR as we all work through challenges and opportunities, not only as a societal leader but also as a reviewer for JVIR and contributor to the SIR Annual Scientific Meeting.

Please join us in celebrating Dr. Abraham's multiple achievements and successes. Fellowship is presently bestowed on less than ten percent of SIR membership. It represents significant achievement on Dr. Abraham's part.  

We are very pleased to invite you to accept this award at the annual fellowship dinner at the SIR 41st Annual Scientific Meeting in Vancouver on April 4, 2016. In addition, you will be recognized as a new fellow in the plenary session Tuesday morning, April 5, 2016.
