AACE Academy of Fellows

The goals of the Academy include working with the AACE Executive Council to identify trends in cancer education and training; steering advances in the field; fostering innovation and collaboration; supporting and mentoring peers and trainees; and enhancing the critical importance of cancer education and training in the rapidly changing cancer care environment. Fellows include all AACE and EACE Past Presidents as well as individuals who have demonstrated both exemplary commitment to AACE and the highest achievements in the field of cancer education. They are selected through a rigorous peer-review process, and induction into the Academy is a very high honor. Fellows are expected to engage actively to address the goals stated above.
