Evaluation

In evaluating the eligibility of Fellowship applicants, the College investigates each applicant’s entire surgical practice. Applicants for Fellowship are required to provide all necessary information for the evaluation of their surgical practice.

Associate Fellows are encouraged to apply for Fellowship within the first 6 years of their surgical practice. To encourage that transition, Associate Fellowship is limited to surgeons who have been Associates for 6 years or less.
