Who can become a member

Membership of the A-DFS is open to diabetic foot surgeons who are either actively working with the diabetic foot, or who, for other reasons, have an interest in surgery on the diabetic foot.

To meet the membership criteria you must have a degree in a surgical discipline and either currently being, or in the past having been, performing surgery on the diabetic foot. Foot surgeons without diabetic foot experience must motivate their interest when applying for membership.

Honorary memberships may be granted to distinguished professionals who have made extraordinary contributions to the ADFS or to development of surgery on the diabetic foot. 

Representatives from industry may be members of the association, but are not allowed to stand for or vote in elections for the A-DFS board.

Membership fee

The annual membership fee currently € 100 for ordinary members and € 150 for  industry representatives.
Membership fees are annual and should be paid upon acceptance of membership.

If a member wishes to terminate his or her membership, this must be done in writing to the secretariat.
