Membership Requirements

Fellowship in AACC Academy is open to AACC members who are doctoral-level clinical scientists and meet the AACC Academy membership criteria. The category of Associate Fellow is for doctoral-level individuals who do not meet the criteria.

Membership Benefits

In their first year, new Fellows and Associate Fellows may attend the Academy’s Annual Membership Meeting and Awards Luncheon (held during the AACC Annual Scientific Meeting) at no charge. Fellows and Associate Fellows receive all publications of the Academy. Fellows are eligible to hold elective office (as President, a Council member, or Nominating Committee member), to vote in all elections or on proposed bylaws amendments, and to serve on or chair committees. Associate Fellows are eligible to serve on committees but may not hold elective office.

AACC Academy Designation

Fellows of AACC Academy use the designation of FAACC. This designation is equivalent to FACB, the previous designation used by fellows of the National Academy of Clinical Biochemistry, which became AACC Academy in 2016.
