Become FACS in 2024 — Dec. 1 Deadline Approaching 

As President of the Tennessee Chapter of the American College of Surgeons (TNACS), I encourage you to take the next important step in your surgical career and apply to become a Fellow of the ACS (FACS) if you meet the eligibility requirements.

If you meet the requirements, the deadline to apply and become a Fellow in 2024 is December 1, 2023.

The application is online, will pre-populate with your profile information once you’ve logged in, and is free – if your ACS dues are paid. Click here to apply!

I also encourage you to get involved with TNACS. Our chapter works closely with the ACS to offer:

  • the opportunity to network with surgical peers locally,
  • participation in advocacy activities at the state and federal levels,
  • leadership roles within the chapter, and
  • educational meetings with CME opportunities such as Fireside Chats and the Chapter Annual Meeting which will be August 2-4, at the Westin Chattanooga.

If you have any questions about the benefits of Fellowship or our chapter, please do not hesitate to contact me at or our Chapter Administrator at

Best regards,
W. Heath Giles, MD, FACS
President, TNACS
