The MSCAI designation recognizes outstanding members of SCAI who are nominated by their peers for having demonstrated excellence over the course of their careers and for their commitment to the highest levels of clinical care, innovation, publication and teaching.

A new class of MSCAI are nominated every year by their peers in the SCAI member community. While only currently active FSCAI can be nominated, any SCAI member can submit a nomination.

Nominations for the 2022 class have now closed. SCAI members will be notified by email and via the website when nominations open in Fall 2022 for the MSCAI class of 2023.
