The status of EFEHRA will be conferred by the EHRA Selection Committee upon written request of the FEHRA when he/she reaches the minimum age of 65 years and retires from full-time work. Proof of retirement should be provided to the EHRA Team.
An Emeritus Fellow retains the title of FEHRA but is no longer required to pay the annual FEHRA fee.
He/she is entitled to attend the EHRA congress at a reduced registration fee.
The status of EFEHRA will not be offered to Fellows with outstanding FEHRA fees unpaid.
In 2021, Profs. John Camm and Federico Lombardi became EFEHRA.
