Instructions for Nomination (Deadline: February 12, 2021)

Eligibility for Nomination:
  • Any person, alive or deceased, who has made outstanding and notable contributions to the initiation, evolution and/or advancement of clinical engineering can be nominated for induction into the CE-HOF, regardless of age, sex, race, nationality, residency, education level, years of experience, and membership within ACCE (i.e., non-ACCE members are acceptable).
 
Nomination Requirements:
The essential requirement for induction into the CE-HOF is that the individual has contributed in a meaningful way to the initiation, evolution or advancement of the profession.  This requirement must be demonstrated by showing how the candidate’s contributions have met one or more of the following criteria:
· Impact: The contribution has significantly impacted the development or growth of clinical engineering and continues to demonstrate relevance to the profession’s continual advancement and evolution.
· Influence: The contribution has significantly influenced: i) the work of others in the field; ii) the healthcare industry; iii) society at large, regardless of country or region of the world.
· Innovation: The contribution has challenged the status quo and entrenched misconceptions with original thinking/creativity through: i) introduction of new concepts, methods, or tools; ii) removal or reduction of obstacles; or iii) enhancement of safety and reliability of medical equipment.
· Reach: The contribution has significantly impacted a large number of current and prospective clinical engineering professionals, clinical users, regulatory authorities, patients, and society at large.

Qualifying Factors:
Induction into the CE-HOF is a unique recognition that the person inducted has contributed in a meaningful way to the initiation, evolution or advancement of the profession.  In addition to meeting the above-mentioned criteria:
· The contribution should benefit the profession, not just the employer of the nominee.  Further, the contribution should not be considered as normal and expected from his/her employment or assignment.  
· The contribution should demonstrate an evolution or advancement in the profession that represents, as best can be determined, an effect that will stand the test of time.
· The achievements that comprise the contribution must affect the profession, rather than recognize the individual.  For example, a body of work that qualifies a person for the Lifetime Achievement Award, but which does not demonstrate an evolution or advancement of the profession as a whole, would not qualify the person for induction into the CE-HOF.
The following accomplishments, while they might qualify a nominee for a Lifetime Achievement Award, are not sufficient by themselves for membership in the CE-HOF:
· Awards, honors, patents, decorations, etc.
· Published editorials, articles, book chapters, books, etc.
· Lectures, keynote speeches, presentations, etc.
· Certifications, association memberships, etc.
· Leadership position in organizations, companies, associations, etc.
