The criteria necessary before the AAFP accepts cases for legal support in the area of hospital privileges include:
- Strict following of the AAFP Protocol for Handling Hospital Privilege Problems.
- Impact on the family medicine movement.
- Evidence of discrimination based on physician specialty rather than individual qualifications. (In accordance with the legal principle of "inurement," a tax exempt organization may not expend funds for the benefit of an individual.)
