It is important that your surgeon is a member of the American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS). Members of ACMS are required to complete extra training in the form of an intensive one or two-year post-residency program.
This extensive fellowship includes participating in at least 500 Mohs Micrographic Surgery cases under the supervision of an experienced, ACMS-approved Mohs surgeon. Fellows are chosen only after completing an extremely competitive review and selection process.
ACMS-approved training programs must pass a rigorous application and review process before being allowed to train a fellow. Once the training program is approved, it must continue to adhere to the standards set by the College. All ACMS-approved training programs are periodically re-evaluated on a one to five year basis to ensure that the ACMS's academic and clinical requirements are being followed and fulfilled.
