That surgeon must then wait a minimum of two years before sitting for extensive written and oral exams. The board actually reviews all of the cases done over a 12 month period as part of the examining process. After completing board certification, a surgeon may then apply for review of his or her credentials and practice to become a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, (FACS). This process can take another two years.
