Supporting Comprehensive Family Medicine Practices
The AAFP advocates for payment reform models that result in greater investment in family medicine, pushes for the adoption and implementation of advanced primary care functions, and ensures appropriate value of the comprehensive services you provide. We provide tools and resources to help educate primary care practice teams, and support for scope of practice and issues faced by employed physicians.
Reducing Administrative Complexity
The AAFP is committed to reducing point-of-care administrative functions that detract from your patient care activities. We actively advance reforms to reduce burden around EHR documentation, prior authorizations, and quality measurement to ensure administrative complexities have limited impact on the quality of care provided to patients.
Building a Diverse Workforce
The AAFP creates awareness around the importance of family medicine. By advocating for the expansion of graduate medical education and payment reform, the AAFP works to rebalance the composition and distribution of the physician workforce in the U.S. We support workforce growth that is inclusive and representative of those underrepresented in medicine.
Enhancing Clinical Expertise
The AAFP provides broad scope, personalized learning through a variety of educational venues and formats to equip you with the knowledge and skills to provide high quality, evidence-based care for your patients. We offer tools to help train family physicians to address health disparities as they impact individuals, families, and communities. Our clinical recommendations deliver evidence-based guidance about preventive care, diagnosis and assessment, and management of acute and chronic conditions.
