The Society actively encourages new members. The HNODIS Council has decided to waive any membership fees.
Membership categories include:
Will be granted to persons who have made an outstanding contribution in their area of interest. This involves Senior Clinicians, Senior Scientists, Senior Physicists, Senior Technicians, Engineers and Senior Radiologists and Pathologists.
Will be granted to persons who are either in approved training programmes or are involved in postgraduate qualifications. Up on the grant of the qualification or the certificate of training, the Fellow-in-Training need to apply for a Senior Fellow membership and the application will be considered by The Council. Non clinical post docs within 5 years of obtaining their PhD will also be eligible.
Will be granted to persons who do not fit in the above categories. Applications by undergraduate students will be considered by the Council.
Will be granted to persons who do not hold membership with the Society but have provided substantial support to the Society or its Educational Congresses or Scientific Meetings.
Fellowship in Optical Diagnostics and Interventions
Will be granted to persons who have sustained and effective record of impact at strategic level as part of a wider commitment to the Society and the scope covered by the Society.

Senior Fellows of the Society are usually eligible to apply for this status. If approved, the member will be moved from the "Senior Fellow" to the "Fellowship" category.
