Become FACS in 2023 –
Dec.1 Deadline Approaching

As President of the Maryland Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (MD-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.

I would also like to encourage you to get involved with the MD-ACS. 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…, to name just a few

If you have any questions about the benefits of Fellowship or our chapter, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Best regards,
Joseph V. Sakran, MD, MPH, MPA, FACS
President, MD-ACS
