Board certification qualifies Junior Fellow members for Fellow status but transfer to Fellow is only granted after a completed Fellow application has been received, processed and approved by the Executive Board. Please allow up to one to two (1-2) months to process. After approval has been granted, new Fellows are admitted and notified by mail on a monthly basis.

Recently board certified Junior Fellow members must complete and submit an application for Fellow status within one year of passing Part II of the oral boards to retain membership with ACOG.
