The NY Chapter of the ACS encourages interested surgeons and associate members to apply for ACS Fellowship before the December 1 deadline. If you are eligible to become a Fellow, applications received by December 1 will be considered for conferral of Fellowship at the 2020 Clinical Congress, October 4–8, in Chicago, IL.
The letters FACS (Fellow, American College of Surgeons) after a surgeon’s name mean that the surgeon’s education and training, professional qualifications, surgical competence, and ethical conduct have passed a rigorous evaluation, and have been found to be consistent with the high standards established and demanded by the College. Take this opportunity to become a Fellow and add this important designation to your credentials.
In addition to the many benefits outlined in the FACS brochure, Fellows of the ACS have the opportunity to engage with other surgeons in their community by joining one of the College’s 114 local chapters. At the chapter level, surgeons can network and build strong relationships with surgical peers, participate in advocacy and educational activities, take on leadership roles, give back to the profession through volunteerism, and mentor young surgeons.Visit the Become a Fellow webpage and realize the potential of your profession today!
