Connect to the core of family medicine

Family physicians are dedicated to treating the whole person. That’s why the AAFP is intent on clearing away the distractions that take your focus away from your patients.

Connect with our 134,600 family physician, resident, and student members today and help us spark the kind of change that improves the health of every patient, family, and community in this country.

The AAFP connects us to our broader family medicine community. The commonalities between osteopathic and allopathic family physicians far exceed our differences, and our diversity of experience enriches my practice and strengthens my advocacy. I love feeling like I’m helping to unite our shared mission and message as family physicians for one stronger, louder primary care voice.
