The ACMS fellowship is an additional course of study for one to two years that provides the opportunity for surgeons to become highly skilled in Mohs surgery. During the fellowship, each surgeon-in-training must participate in a minimum of 500 cases under the supervision of a Mohs College approved, fellowship-trained instructor (surgeon).

An MD or DO must have completed a one or two year Mohs fellowship at one of the 70+ Mohs Training Programs across the country. Most programs are one-year programs, but the programs are identical in all but the length of time it takes to complete them. All Mohs fellows must complete at least 500 Mohs surgery cases during their fellowship, most under the guidance of the training program director, but in a minimum of 125 cases, they must be the "primary" surgeon.
