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

Opportunities and Resources

Join the Associate Fellow Workgroup

Associate fellows—members of ACS that are no longer in a training program, but that have not yet attained Fellowship in the ACS—are needed to help define and elaborate resources and opportunities for networking, engagement, and collaboration.

We are looking for a group of associate fellows interested in volunteering to serve on a workgroup focused to define appropriate programs and resources for other associate fellows. If you are interested, please contact and please state “Associate Fellows” in the subject line. Looking very forward to being in touch!
