Fellowship of the Australian Chinese Medical Association

Fellowship of the ACMA (FACMA) is an honour within ACMA. Being an FACMA is a distinction earned from colleagues who recognize your accomplishments and achievements over and above the practice of medicine. The most important considerations for ACMA Fellowship are excellence and contributions made to both medicine and to the broader community in which the doctor lives and practices. Self nomination is accepted.

ACMA Fellowship is primarily achieved through advancement from ACMA Membership. Fellows are authorised to use the letters FACMA (Fellow of the Australian Chinese Medical Association) in connection with their professional activities for as long as their membership remains current. All nominations of FACMA are considered, assessed and approved by the Management Committee of ACMA. Management Committee of ACMA has the final decision authority to bestow or withdraw the Fellowship award.

The award ceremony is to be carried out every year in the Annual Dinner of ACMA.
