Any member that has held Diplomate Status for five consecutive years after completing the HCQM Certification Exam will automatically be recognized as a Fellow of ABQAURP. Fellows may use the designation of FABQAURP in addition to their CHCQM designation to distinguish themselves among their peers.

To qualify for Fellowship, Diplomates must be current on their annual dues (due by January 1st each year) and recertification requirements (8 hours of CME/CE every two years). Diplomate records are evaluated annually in January to identify Diplomates that have achieved and/or maintained Fellowship status. Diplomates meeting the qualifications will automatically earn Fellowship status and a certificate will be mailed to each Fellow.
