Welcome to the American College of Mohs Surgery Website

The organization founded in 1967 by Dr. Frederic E. Mohs, the pioneering creator of the Mohs micrographic surgical technique.

The American College of Mohs Surgery (ACMS) is the only organization that requires its members to have successfully completed an extensive one- to two-year ACMS-approved fellowship training program after they have completed their years of residency training.

From its inception, the ACMS has promoted and continues to set the highest standards of patient care relating to Mohs micrographic surgery through its fellowship training process.

During training, ACMS members must have participated in at least 500 Mohs micrographic surgery cases under the supervision of an experienced, ACMS-approved Mohs surgeon.

With their additional one- to two-years of advanced fellowship training in Mohs micrographic surgery, ACMS surgeons have learned to precisely identify the tumor, remove it with minimal damage to the surrounding healthy tissue, and reconstruct the wound.

To find an ACMS fellowship trained Mohs Surgeon in your area, visit our Surgeon Finder or call us at 1-800-500-7224.
