According to AAPOS Bylaws (Article V), you must apply DURING your Fellowship year to be a Candidate-in-Training AND your fellowship program MUST be AUPO FCC compliant and the applicant MUST be in a current AUPO FCC compliant clinical position. Applications received AFTER the fellowship is completed or from non-compliant programs or who are not in an AUPO FCC compliant clinical position will not be considered for Candidate-in-Training membership. Please review the Programs in Compliance list on the AUPO FCC website.
If you did not apply during your Fellowship year, please review the other membership categories to determine if you are eligible. Please note that most require practice experience. The application deadline posted on the website is firm for all except the Candidates-in-Training applications.
Please note that applicants are required to provide complete and accurate professional information and are responsible for obtaining references and verifications for credentials, licenses, certifications and educational requirements.
