FASE – Fellow of the American Society of Echocardiography

Your Performance Stands Out, So Should YOU!


Echo practitioners of all specialty types who demonstrate proficiency and dedication to the field of cardiovascular ultrasound may apply for FASE.

The FASE credential recognizes the dedicated ASE member with an extraordinary commitment to the field of cardiovascular ultrasound. This designation is a peer-review process.

Review the FASE point guidelines to see if you are eligible.  The point guidelines will help FASE applicants and reviewers determine if FASE criteria are met.  All applicants will continue to demonstrate involvement in two of the three professional activities.  The points are ONLY a guideline.  The FASE applications and supporting documentation will continue to be reviewed to determine that a member meets the FASE criteria.

Apply online by logging in to your ASE Member Portal, select FASE Application from the menu bar.
