Credentialing and Privileging Assistance
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.
ACFAS Credentialing and Privileging Advisory Team (CPAT)
In addition to the documents listed below, members can pose questions to the ACFAS Credentialing and
Privileging Advisory Team (CPAT). CPAT is comprised of 10 specially trained and experienced peer mentors. If you are encountering difficulty in credentialing or privileging, please send a detailed email outlining your particular situation to firstname.lastname@example.org, and one or more members of the team will contact you.
The Privileging Toolkit was developed by the ACFAS Health Policy Committee (HPC) and individual members who have overcome
barriers in their own practice settings. The purpose of these documents is
to aid ACFAS members who are faced with a problem in obtaining or
modifying practice privileges.
