What is the AARC Fellowship Program?
AARC Members who have reached a level of distinction in the professional practice of respiratory care may be eligible for inclusion in the AARC Fellowship Program.
AARC Fellows exhibit the qualities and attributes of true professionals by contributing to the art and science of respiratory care. In 1998, AARC began this program to recognize the achievements and contributions of these members by conferring upon those who meet the criteria the AARC Fellow designation and the right to use the FAARC identifier after their names.
An AARC Fellowship will be conferred upon those who have met a standard of excellence in the practice of respiratory care. A Fellows’ contributions extend beyond his or her individual job to a wider sphere of influence. Through educational achievement, validation of competency through advanced credentials, research initiatives, publication, and clinical initiatives, an AARC Fellow will have made a mark as a respiratory care professional of distinction.
It is an honor for the AARC to be able to recognize these individuals through the AARC Fellow Program.
The criteria and rules for AARC Fellowship as established by the AARC for induction into the AARC Fellow Program is available.
