FACS

Dr. Tam was recently inducted as a Fellow into the American College of Surgeons. As such, she can now add to her title, the letters, “FACS” which stand for “Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.” Those letters after a surgeon’s name mean that the surgeon’s education and training, professional qualifications, surgical competence, and ethical conduct have passed a rigorous evaluation, and have been found to be consistent with the high standards established and demanded by the College.

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) is a scientific and educational association of surgeons that was founded in 1913 to improve the quality of care for the surgical patient by setting high standards for surgical education and practice. ACS is dedicated to improving the care of the surgical patient and to safeguarding standards of care in an optimal and ethical practice environment.

The American College of Surgeons admits to its Fellowship only those surgeons whose professional activity is devoted to surgical practice and who agree to practice by the professional and ethical standards of the College. These standards are outlined in their Statements on Principles.

The College currently has more than 80,000 members, including more than 6,600 Fellows in other countries, making it the largest organization of surgeons in the world. There are presently more than 3,200 Associate Fellows.

Her membership in the ACS, along with her COEMIG designation, is further assurance to all her patients that she brings to them the highest level of knowledge and expertise in healthcare, while maintaining a professional standard of ethical excellence in her practice.
