  • Earning or Acquiring Fellow Status

    Why Fellowship?

    The status of Fellow is the highest classification of membership in ACOEM. Fellowship distinguishes and recognizes members of the College for their training, accomplishments, and experience in occupational medicine at the national, component, and local levels, as well as the member’s academic and scientific contributions. The Committee of Fellowship Examiners feels passionately that the College needs more Fellows and that those who are making significant contributions to the College and the field of occupational and environmental medicine deserve special recognition.

    Fellowship provides ACOEM members the opportunity to serve our organization at the highest levels and is a qualification for leadership positions such as council chairs and officers of the Board of Directors. Too often, an outstanding colleague must be passed over for a leadership position because he is not an ACOEM Fellow.

    How Do I Apply?

    Applications are available below, or call 224-265-6773 to request an application. Applications are reviewed year-round and must be submitted to Jerrie Abrahamsen, Executive Coordinator, no later than November 1st.

    The Committee of Fellowship Examiners submits their recommendations to the Board of Directors for approval. All candidates are then notified of the status of their application. New Fellows are recognized with a Fellow medallion in a special elevation ceremony which opens the Annual Membership Meeting Luncheon held at the American Occupational Health Conference (AOHC) each year.
