Fellow Membership is a special step in validating your expertise and proficiency in implant dentistry. To qualify for the Fellow examination, applicants must be Associate Fellows in good standing, provide both the surgical and restorative phases of implant dentistry and meet the published educational and experiential requirements. They must also meet the professional and leadership credentials requirements specified in the Requirements for Fellow Membership.
Effective with the 2013 examination, those who have passed Part 1 (written) of the Associate Fellow examination will have the option of taking the oral/case examination for either Associate Fellow or Fellow membership. Those who select the latter option must meet the educational, experiential and professional and leadership requirements for Fellowship. Additionally, they must complete the oral/case examination successfully within four years after passing the Part 1 (written) examination and must be general members of the Academy in good standing.
The Fellow certificate and medallion are awarded to successful candidates.
The Fellow examination is given in Chicago once a year usually in late April or early May, and the application deadline each year is February 1.
