Fellow of the American Epilepsy Society

AES offers a Fellow of the American Epilepsy Society (FAES) designation to recognize members who have shared their time and talents to advance both the AES mission and the field of epilepsy.

Selection as a Fellow of the American Epilepsy Society is an honor that demonstrates professional accomplishment and dedication in the field of epilepsy. It is a way that members recognize peers who have made especially meaningful contributions through research, clinical or academic achievement, volunteerism, and/or leadership. 

Fellows are recognized at the AES Annual Meeting and on the AES website. In professional communications, Fellows may use the FAES designation along with other credentials after their name.

  • You are a current AES member and have been an Active, Professional, or International member for at least seven consecutive years. To qualify, you must have joined AES on or before December 31, 2012, and have paid your dues for the 2021-2022 membership year on or before August 1, 2020.
