Equal Representation of Women in Family Medicine

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) confirms its policies on women in family medicine by encouraging women to: (a) continue to enter the specialty of family medicine; (b) participate actively in all AAFP programs and activities, and (c) participate at all levels of leadership, thus ensuring that the personal and professional development of women family physicians is addressed.
