American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

Member Services

Membership in the American College of Surgeons (ACS) is an integral part of your profession. Whether you're still in training, or at the peak of your career, our top priority is providing value for you, our members—at every step. The College provides value to you every day: a subscription to the Journal of the American College of Surgeons and the Bulletin, access to the members-only content of the ACS website, educational offerings to suit your practice, opportunities to affect change, and strong advocates working diligently on your behalf.

New International Dues Structure

A new dues structure for International Fellows of the College will take effect in 2016. The World Bank income categories of high, upper middle, low middle, and low were used as a guide to establish the international dues rates. Dues statements for International Fellows will go out in November 2015 and new application fees will go into effect on January 1, 2016.
