Privileges, Documentation of Training and Experience

The American Academy of Family Physicians believes that documentation of training and experience is of utmost importance, not only for residents preparing for their first application for hospital privileges, but also for practicing physicians.

The AAFP recommends that family physicians document all significant training and experience so that it is recorded and can be reported in an organized fashion. Such documentation should include at a minimum all procedural skills, intensive/critical care experiences, treatment of major illnesses, and other significant training and experiences.
