Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, often listed as "FACOG" is a post-nominal title for members indicating their status with the College. This indicates that the OB/GYN's education and training, professional qualifications, medical-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. To become a fellow, candidates must become certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

Notes and TriviaEdit

  • This title isn't automatically gained and must be applied for once certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, post-residency.
  • Because membership to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists is optional and voluntary, not every OB/GYN will have the FACOG title.
  • In the real-world, the College has been renamed to the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
