AACS Fellowship Directors: Training the Next Generation

AACS Certified Cosmetic Surgery Fellowship Programs distinguish the Academy from other aesthetic organizations. These programs fill an essential part of the continuum of a cosmetic surgeon's education, training, and experience. They offer hands-on education from an ABCS or ABFCS board-certified program director who has demonstrated teaching experience and a commitment to train and mentor the next generation of cosmetic surgeons. 

Our 32 AACS fellowship programs are certified through an application process approved by the fellowship committee and the Board of Trustees. Most program directors are former fellows themselves and have reaped the benefits of the rigorous training during their careers. They find this complex, yet rewarding role as an opportunity to pay it forward.  


If you are interested in joining this esteemed group of cosmetic surgery leaders and supporting AACS’s mission to advocate for the highest standards in patient safety, please review the Facial or General Guidelines for qualifications. The online application can be completed at any time.
