CMH General Surgeon Receives Credentials As Fellow Of The American College Of Surgeons

MARYSVILLE – Dr. Cheryl Rice, MD, FACS, general surgeon at Community Memorial Healthcare, has been named as a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, or “FACS”, is a post-nominal credential used to indicate that the surgeon’s education and training, professional qualifications, surgical competence, and ethical conduct have passed a rigorous evaluation, and have been found to be consistent with the high standards established and demanded by said College.

According to the American College of Surgeons, the FACS credential “exists to foster the professional growth and development of surgeons, promote high standards and best practices in surgical care, and establish and maintain patients’ confidence in the ability and integrity of their surgeon. Conferred on surgeons who meet specific academic and practice requirements, the FACS credential can only be used by Fellows in good standing with the American College of Surgeons (ACS). The ACS admits to its Fellowship only those surgeons whose professional activity is devoted to surgical practice and who agree without compromise to practice by the professional and ethical standards of the College.”

The FACS designation gives surgeons the most up-to-date information and access to mentors and other professional surgeons across the country. In order to qualify, the applicant must meet stringent requirements certifying their professional, moral, and personal eligibility.

Each applicant for fellowship must have twelve consecutive months of practice in his or her current location before an application may be submitted. Dr. Rice began practicing at Community Memorial Healthcare in July 2017. She lives in Oketo with her husband, Eric, and their two children.
