About the Fellowship Program
Through a generous grant from the ACP Foundation, the ACP annually funds $110,000 toward a minimum of one fellowship.

Phlebology fellowship training programs will be approved only after fulfilling rigorous standards of training and excellence. Approved programs have the distinction of being among the first formal training programs in the nation.

Approved programs will provide fellows with education and clinical training in all aspects of venous disease, per the ACP Approved Curriculum. Graduates of approved phlebology fellowships are eligible to sit for the American Board of Venous & Lymphatic Medicine certification exam.
