Individuals accepted into an ASES recognized shoulder/elbow fellowship or a sports, arthroscopy, or hand fellowship with an Active ASES member as faculty will be able to enter the society as a fellow member if they complete an application and pay the appropriate fees.
Eligibility to apply as a Fellow member starts once an applicant is matched with their fellowship program. If accepted, membership will terminate at the end of the calendar year in which their fellowship ends unless they apply to advance to Candidate during that membership cycle. If they do apply to advance, their membership would remain active until the results of the membership process are determined. If approved they will advance to Candidate member. If denied their membership would be terminated at that time.
