Become FACS in 2023 – Dec. 1 Deadline Approaching
As President of the North Carolina Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), I encourage you to take the next important step in your surgical career and apply to become a Fellow of the ACS (FACS) if you meet the eligibility requirements.
If you meet the requirements, the deadline to apply and become a Fellow in 2023 is December 1, 2022.
The application is online, will prepopulate with your profile information once you’ve logged in, and is free – if your ACS dues are paid. Click here to apply.
I would also like to encourage you to get involved with the North Carolina Chapter of the American College of Surgeons. Our chapter works closely with the ACS to offer:
- the opportunity to network with surgical peers locally
- participate in advocacy activities at the state and federal levels
- leadership roles within the chapter
- educational meetings with CME opportunities (Save the Date – Aug. 4-6, 2023), to name just a few
If you have any questions about the benefits of Fellowship or our chapter, please do not hesitate to contact me.
