Verification of Program and 2012 Incoming Fellows

Verification will be sent out in August by email to compliant programs. This is an IMPORTANT step. Completing the online verification form will allow your fellow to begin entering procedures, surgeries, cases (depending on your subspecialty), right away. They cannot start this log until they have been verified by you.

Please check in with your fellows after your verification step is complete to be sure they have started recording their procedures using our online log system.

Change of Fellowship Director?
If there has been a change in fellowship director please take the time during this process to update us on who the new fellowship director should be along with appropriate contact information.

Have you shared the program requirements with your fellows?
The most current copies are located on the AUPO FCC website under each subspecialty.
