To help ensure the best training possible, the ACMS developed the Grievance Committee to serve as a confidential review board for complaints by fellows-in-training or other participants in fellowship training programs. The Grievance Committee will receive and review all complaints from any source but is specifically intended as a method of regress for fellows.

The obligation of the fellow or complainant is to file a confidential grievance either verbally or in writing (preferred) to ACMS Staff and must include:

  1. The name of the complainant
  2. The details of the complaint
  3. The name of the involved program
  4. The name of other individuals involved in the complaint if any
  5. Any other relevant details.

Concerns are kept confidential and will be used as a quality assurance measure for the fellowship training programs. If you have concerns regarding a training program, please do not hesitate to send an email to
