Faculty Criteria and Application
ACFAS has had an increasing number of individuals interested in becoming faculty. Given the limited number of faculty positions, we are temporarily closing faculty applications as we evaluate our faculty application and assignment process. Please watch for correspondence from ACFAS regarding the updated process.
The College’s three educational program committees are responsible for developing the specialty’s most respected CME curriculum, including the ACFAS Annual Scientific Conference, hands-on surgical skills courses, other single-topic seminars including practice management and regional symposia. They also develop content for podcasts, e-books, and other e-learning tools.
ACFAS always seeks to diversify its faculty with new instructors who possess the expertise and experience needed to maintain the College’s high standards and attendee expectations. A Board position statement outlines the variety of expectations and qualities considered in the speaker selection process (see below). Faculty members of the Annual Scientific Conference are provided free general registration and reimbursement of travel expenses. Surgical courses and symposia faculty are provided a modest honoraria and reimbursement of travel expenses.
