List of Available Fellowships

List of Fellowships with ACFAS Status
ACFAS highly recommends the continuation of foot and ankle surgical education after residency in the form of a specialized fellowship. The ACFAS Recognized Fellowship Initiative fosters high-quality fellowship programs through recognition, support and visibility. Programs meeting minimal requirements are officially recognized by the College: programs are reviewed on an annual basis. Fellows of these recognized programs 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 its discretion may require different application materials or interview processes.
