YFA Seeks Fellows for Mentorship Program

July 17, 2020 9:49 AM | Anonymous

The Young Fellows Association (YFA) of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) is seeking applications from Fellows of the College who would like to apply for the year-long YFA Mentorship Program.  We are in special need of mentors this year. 

Mentoring teams are made up of three people:

  1. Early career surgeon – an Associate Fellow (an ACS member out of training, but not yet FACS) or a young Fellow in practice less than 5 years, who traditionally will serve as a mentee in this triad relationship

  2. Mid-level career surgeon – a Young Fellow (an ACS Fellow under the age of 45) who might serve as a mentor to the early career surgeon and a mentee alongside an advanced professional

  3. Advanced professional – a ACS Fellow who holds a leadership within the ACS or an ACS Fellow who has been practicing for more than 10 years

 The mentorship relationship will extend from October 2020 through October 2021. 

Visit the Young Fellows Association webpage for more details and to access links to the Mentor and Mentee applications at

Questions can be directed to Alison Powers
