Dedicated to improving women’s health throughout the world, ACOG was established in 1951. The nonprofit organization focuses on educational resources and programs, while its companion organization, the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, focuses on advocacy, practice, and research. With nearly 60,000 members, ACOG is open to everyone in the field of women’s health, from medical students to allied educational affiliates.

ACOG membership is divided into categories based on specialty and experience. ACOG fellows are board-certified ob-gyns with current, unrestricted licenses to practice. Fellow membership applications and qualifications are reviewed by the organization’s executive board, a process that can take up to four months.
