Founding Fellows in JRS
ACVS Founding Fellows in Joint Replacement Surgery (JRS) are remarkable leaders as evidenced by their exemplary training, robust experience, innovative research, and committed practice. They continue to devote a significant portion of their professional effort in seeking to prevent, diagnose, treat, and rehabilitate patients in the specialized field of joint replacement surgery.
Establishing an ACVS Fellowship Training Center for JRS
Currently there are no training centers in JRS at this time. Fellow candidates cannot register until a training center has been established for this discipline. If interested in establishing a center, contact the ACVS office or Dr. Michael Kowaleski, chair of the JRS Fellowship Oversight Committee. Training institutions must comply with the Minimum Standards for ACVS Fellowship Training in Joint Replacement Surgery.
Volunteering to serve on the fellowship oversight committees
The fellowship oversight committee (FOC) is responsible for monitoring the fellowship program and for providing status reports to the Fellowship Committee on training centers, training candidates, and requests for program modifications. Serving on the fellowship oversight committee is a three-year term.
