List of Available Fellowships

ACFAS highly recommends the continuation of foot and ankle surgical education after residency in the form of a specialized fellowship. In order to foster high-quality fellowship programs through support, recognition and visibility, the ACFAS Board of Directors approved the ACFAS Recognized Fellowship initiative. Programs meeting minimal requirements are officially recognized by the College, which will in turn provide support for these recognized programs. Fellows of these recognized programs will benefit from lower dues rates and recognition of program completion.

Standard Program Application

If you are interested in applying to any of the programs that hold status with ACFAS, you may complete the attached standard program application and submit it to the program(s) you are interested in attending. Please note: This form is to be used to facilitate the application process for fellowship applicants, but each program at their discretion may require different application materials or interview processes.
