Fellow Membership



Fellow Membership in the Association of Physician Assistants in Cardiovascular Surgery (FAPACVS) is reserved for active members of the Association who have distinguished themselves as competent and proficient in the practice of Cardiac, Vascular and/or Thoracic Surgery and CVT Critical Care. This successful program was established in 2006 and has since been emulated by other PA societies. The Fellow member concept has been endorsed by The Society of Thoracic Surgeons.

Fellows are elected by an 8 member committee consisting of Current Fellow Members of the APACVS.  Applications are reviewed on an ad hoc basis. The primary requirement for this level of achievement is the competency attestation by the CVT PA's Supervising Physician. The CVT PA must also submit documentation of their patient encounters (minimum of 200), and have been working in the field for at least two years full time. If a PA has successfully completed a post graduate residency in cardiovascular and thoracic surgery, then one year of full time clinical experience is accepted.

Once elected as a Fellow, the member is entitled to utilize the FAPACVS designation for as long as they remain in the clinical practice of Cardiac, Vascular and/or Thoracic Surgery and CVT Critical Care and remain in good standing as an active member of the Association.
