Junior Fellows in Practice Resources

Junior Fellows in Practice are Junior Fellows who have finished residency and/or fellowship training and are just beginning practice. Junior Fellows in Practice obtain Fellow status once they have met the requirements for fellowship, which includes board certification.

ACOG DOES NOT grant board certification; this is carried out by the American Board of Ob/Gyn (ABOG). Please see their website at  www.abog.org for specific questions regarding board certification.
