Dr Santin inducted into Fellowship
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) inducted Dr Brian Santin into Fellowship of the ACS on Sunday, October 4th. Each year the ACS considers applications for Fellowship and those applicants who qualify are then subjected to an interview process. If an applicant scores highly through each step, they are then invited to become a Fellow of the ACS (hence the letters after some physician’s names ‘FACS’). Fellows of the American College of Surgeons are deemed to maintain the highest of ethical and moral standards in the field of surgery in the world.
The induction ceremony took place at the McCormick Center in Chicago, Illinois. In order to apply for Fellowship a surgeon must maintain Board Certification in their field or specialty.
“This designation is another symbol of Ohio Vein & Vascular’s commitment to providing high-quality care to our patients,” said Dr Santin after the induction.
Dr Santin graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelors Degree in Economics before earning his Doctor of Medicine degree from Ohio State. He subsequently completed 5 years of General Surgery Residency at Mount Carmel in Columbus and a 2-year Vascular Surgery Fellowship at Good Samaritan/Bethesda North Hospitals in Cincinnati. Dr Santin is double-board certified in General and Vascular Surgery.
