Active Fellowship is achieved by presenting a thesis in the field of otolaryngology considered acceptable to a panel of peers. The first step on the road to becoming an Active Fellow is to apply for Candidacy. Candidates must be Otolaryngologists certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology or the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons, have been in practice, teaching or research for at least three years post-training, have published a minimum of two papers in peer refereed journals, met the meetings attendance requirement, as well as other requirements for candidacy. Candidates require a proposal by two voting Fellows of the Society (Active, Senior or Emeritus). Once we receive your Candidate application and all accompanying materials, your information is presented for approval at the following January Sections Meeting. Once approved, you become an Active Candidate and can submit your thesis to become an Active Fellow of the Triological Society. New Candidate materials are processed once per year and ARE DUE NO LATER THAN OCTOBER 1ST of each year. Please advise if you need additional time. Thesis information is available here.
