Time to apply for Associate Fellowship

If you are moving from training into practice this year, apply for Associate Fellowship. The application requests basic information about your education and training, licensure, board certification, and hospital and academic affiliations—some of which already exists in your Resident Member record and will auto-populate within the application. The ACS will waive the Associate Fellow application fee for current Resident Members as well as requirements for documentation of training completion.

Once you become an Associate Fellow, your membership at that level will be limited to a period of six years to foster your progression to the Fellowship level. Therefore, Associate Fellows are encouraged to consider applying for full Fellowship once they are eligible.

Application requirements

For Domestic Fellowship, the requirements are as follows:

  • Certification by an appropriate American Board of Medical Specialties Surgical Specialty Board, an American Osteopathic Surgical Specialty Board, or the Royal College of Surgeons in Canada
  • One year of surgical practice after the completion of all formal training (including fellowships)
  • Current appointment at a primary hospital

For International Fellowship applicants, the requirements are as follows:

  • Certification by an appropriate American surgical specialty board or Canadian or international college of physicians and surgeons, or national surgical board from the applicant’s country of practice
  • Three years of surgical practice after the completion of all formal training (including fellowships)
  • Current appointment at a primary hospital

Submit an online application for Associate Fellowship through the ACS website. You will need your ACS members-only website log-in information to access the application. If you do not have your log-in information, contact the Member Services staff at 800-293-4029 or via e-mail at enroll@facs.org for assistance.

When your application has been processed, an e-mail notification will be sent to provide updated information about your membership status.

We look forward to your transition from Resident Member to Associate Fellow of the ACS.
