Sat, 18 November 17 15:59

We are delighted to congratulate Dr Jonathan McNulty (Associate Dean for Graduate Studies) who has been unanimously elected as President of the European Federation of Radiographer Societies.

The European Federation of Radiographer Societies (EFRS) was founded in 2008 by 27 professional societies of radiographers across Europe. Today, it comprises 38 radiographer societies from 32 countries across the continent of Europe as full members.  A further 49 educational institutions from 25 countries have joined as affiliate members.  Through its member organisations, the EFRS represents more than 100,000 radiographers and 8,000 radiography students in Europe.

Congratulating her colleague on his election, UCD Dean of Radiography, Prof Louise Rainford commented,

This is an extremely great achievement. The EFRS is growing in size and activity each year. To have an Irish representative to lead this organisation is of great importance to our profession and reflects the excellent level of professional standing Irish Radiography holds internationally.

The 10th Annual General Meeting of the EFRS took place in Alcalá de Henares, Spain, where the new Executive Board was elected by representatives of the National Societies.  The Executive Board will serve a three-year term till November 2020.
