Members of the Academy are designated as Fellows of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists (FACO). Academy membership is comprised of board certified chiropractic orthopedists. These are doctors of chiropractic who have completed extensive post-doctoral education in non-surgical orthopedics, and have passed a specialty examination to become board certified chiropractic orthopedists (Diplomate).

The Academy is independent from all chiropractic political organizations. No other chiropractic organization membership is necessary for membership in the Academy.

Academy Member Renewal

Your Academy membership privileges you to use the designation Fellow of the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists (FACO). The Academy is the only organization that provides voluntary re-credentialing and recertification of the orthopedic Diplomate status (DACO or DABCO). Membership dues must be paid to maintain FACO designation. Re-credentialed and / or recertified chiropractic orthopedists that are no longer members in good standing with current paid dues demit from their Fellow status with the Academy and will be removed from the recredentialed rolls.

Academy Retired Member Renewal

The Academy is appreciative of your continued membership, and values your support with projects that elevate and improve our specialty. Membership dues must be paid to maintain your FACO designation. Retirement is defined as full and complete absence of clinical work. A doctor is engaged in clinical practice if he or she assesses, diagnoses, gives advice, provides treatment or makes reports that relate to patient care, whether face-to-face or otherwise, with a patient or with a group of patients, or a population. This definition includes the activities of public health medicine, chiropractic or medical administration or teaching positions.
