The American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons stands unequivocally in support of the concept that any credentialing process for privileges in the specialty of foot and ankle surgery should be uniformly applied to all surgeons regardless of medical degree.
NEW! On March 1, 2012, ACFAS launched its Credentialing and Privileging Advisory Team (CPAT). Members seeking peer-assistance related to these types of issues should email email@example.com for access to one of ten specially-trained and experienced mentors ready to assist with credentialing and privileging issues impacting foot and ankle surgeons.
The following documents have been recently developed by the ACFAS Professional Relations Committee and staff to aid ACFAS members who are faced with a problem in obtaining or modifying institutional privileges or credentialing issues. If you have any questions regarding these documents, contact the ACFAS Health Policy department at firstname.lastname@example.org
