Founded in 1967, the American College of Mohs Surgery is a membership organization of 1,500 fellowship-trained skin cancer and reconstructive surgeons specializing in the Mohs micrographic surgical technique pioneered by Dr. Frederic E. Mohs. The ACMS serves as the voice of the specialty, promoting and advancing the highest standards of patient care through fellowship training, research, education and public advocacy.
The American Board of Dermatology (ABD) has announced that The American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) approved the creation of subspecialty certification in Micrographic Dermatologic Surgery (MDS). The ACMS deeply appreciates the strong support of this initiative by its members, and by numerous other specialty organizations and ABMS member boards.
The ACMS asks that the United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP) adopt at least a 12-hour exemption from proposed standards affecting compounded sterile preparations. To treat skin cancers and numerous skin diseases, patients require access to medications prepared and administered in the clinical setting; a longer exemption time period allows for in-office preparations that provide high-quality patient care and patient safety.
