1. How do I become a Fellow?

Each year, the FACNM BOG elects new Fellows-at-Large from a slate of applicants who self-nominate. Fellowship is conferred for the lifetime of the individual. Any CNM or CM who is certified by AMCB, is a current active or associate member of ACNM, and has been a member for a minimum of five consecutive years leading up to the year of application can apply. On the application, applicants will be asked to write in 400 words or less about their contributions in each of the 5 criteria areas. The applicant must also submit a CV and a letter of recommendation, preferably from a current Fellow. Here are some instructions for the letter of recommendation. Application for Fellowship costs $50 and is non-refundable. If an applicant is accepted into Fellowship, an additional $125 will be collected to cover induction expenses.

2. What is the timeline for applying?

  • Application site opens: November 1, 2020
  • Application site closes: December 11, 2020
  • Applicants informed by: February 26, 2021

3. If I am not accepted, can I apply more than once?


Application to Fellowship will be limited to 3 times over the lifetime of an applicant. This policy will not be enforced retroactively for those applicants who applied prior to 1999.

4. Is there a limit to the number of Fellows inducted every year?


No, if an applicant meets the criteria, they will be inducted into Fellowship.
