The Division of Member Services strives to educate surgical patients about what it means to be treated by a surgeon who is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons (FACS). As part of this campaign, the College has created a poster of the Fellowship Pledge that is suitable for display in waiting areas, exam rooms, and offices, and is available for purchase or free download. The Fellowship Pledge poster—available in seven languages: English, Arabic, Chinese (both Simplified and Traditional), Japanese, German, Portuguese and Spanish—may be displayed only by surgeons with the FACS designation.
ACS Fellows are committed to providing their patients with the highest standards of surgical care and pledge to protect the welfare and rights of their patients, to respect each patient’s autonomy and individuality, and to advance their knowledge and skills throughout their careers. The Fellowship Pledge poster is available for purchase for $10.00 including standard shipping, or can be downloaded for free. Visit the ACS Online Store at https://goo.gl/sCKiUc to download your poster. Two PDF versions are available; a 22” x 32” poster that may be printed by a professional print shop, or an 11” x 17” version that may be printed on a personal color printer.
