Are you ready to become an ATS Fellow?

The American Thoracic Society values its members who reside in more than 120 countries around the world. We offer a wide variety of products and services to help you grow in your job and to help patients effectively. The ATS is now offering a “Fellow” designation–ATS Fellow–to its members who meet the criteria. The ATS Fellow designation is a mark of distinction, conferring recognition on members for their accomplishments, dedication and contributions to the Society as well as to the fields of pulmonary, critical care, and sleep medicine.

Who should apply?
Individuals who have been an ATS member for five or more of the past 10 years. You must complete an application including listing your contributions to the ATS and to the field, provide reference letters, and other items described in the application.

How can I apply?
Applications are submitted via an online application link (now disabled) using your ATS member username and password. You may view your application, make edits or upload a new document until you click the Make Payment button.

How are ATS Fellows recognized?
We will spotlight ATS Fellows on the ATS website, member publications, and at the ATS International Conference. Fellows will also receive a plaque and a pin.
