College Convocation

In keeping with the mission of the American College of Endocrinology (ACE), a formal induction of Fellows is conducted yearly in conjunction with the AACE Annual Meeting. The convocation continues to demonstrate the organization’s longstanding commitment to provide recognition in the advances and achievements related to clinical endocrinology. It is during the convocation where qualified candidates are formally inducted as Fellow of the American College of Endocrinology (FACE).

It is a proud moment because after the induction, they can write F.A.C.E. after their name.

At the ceremony, awards for outstanding endocrinologists are also presented.
