Advertising Policies

The Board of Directors has adopted policies to assist in communicating and advertising ABFAS status appropriately and professionally: distinct Advertising Policies for Diplomates and for those holding Board Qualified and candidate statuses. All advertising should convey professional values, attitudes, and demeanor. These polices can help protect and enhance the public image of foot and ankle surgery.

Board Qualified and candidate statuses are not official categories, so do not use these terms in advertising or public-facing documents.
