A premiere took place during the annual convention 2017 in Dresden: For the first time, the DGBMT honored a member as "DGBMT Fellow". As part of the opening ceremony on September 10, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Hartmut Dickhaus (Heidelberg) was awarded the honorary title in recognition of his outstanding achievements for the society. From 2002 to 2017, Mr. Dickhaus was the chairman of the DGBMT Advisory Board and in his resulting position in the DGBMT Executive Board he has taken an outstanding role in advancing the development of the society over many years. In particular, bridging the gap between medical technology on the one hand and medical informatics on the other was a central concern of Mr. Dickhaus.
As part of the DGBMT Annual Conference "BMT", the honorary title "DGBMT Fellow" will be awarded from 2017 in recognition of outstanding achievements for the society.
