FASMBS INTEGRATED HEALTH DESIGNATION PROGRAM
We are happy to announce that the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) will soon accept applications for the designations of Fellow for ASMBS Integreated Health (IH) members- FASMBS-IH .
The IH Fellows Designation Program is an elective designation to recognize individuals who have made significant contributions to the profession of metabolic and bariatric surgery and the ASMBS. Additionally, this designation is to encourage continued ASMBS contributions and engagement by our IH members. Only those recognized by this process will be entitled to use the FASMBS-IH designation. The IH Fellows Designation Program allows this designation to be granted by the FASMBS-IH Review Taskforce, a panel of distinguished ASMBS IH colleagues who evaluate each application individually.
