We are the AAFP
We are Family Physicians. We are the AAFP.
The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) exists to support us while we support our patients. Rejoin the AAFP today to take advantage of member benefits for you, and your patients.
We are Learners
The AAFP gives us the educational resources we need to improve our clinical knowledge to be the best possible physicians we can be.
Through live events, online, or self-study options, stay current on clinical issues with AAFP CME in formats that work for you.
AAFP Mobile App
Easily access the CME reporting tool, patient education materials, and more right at your fingertips.
We are Fighters
Health care would not work without family physicians. That’s why the AAFP advocates for payment reform on our behalf, and why they give us the tools to educate ourselves on the complex MACRA law.
To guide you through the shift to value-based payment, the AAFP has free Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) resources, including a timeline, FAQ, MIPS Playbook, and member-only modules.
Use your voice to influence and inspire change. The AAFP’s federal political action committee works to gain the respect and representation family physicians deserve.
We are Healers
We listen. We comfort. We care. That’s why the AAFP takes care of us, too, with physician well-being resources.
Physician Health First
The AAFP launched its new Physician Health First initiative at the 2017 Family Medicine Experience to help physicians cope with burnout and work-life balance. This initiative also includes a member-only Physician Health First web portal to help inspire, energize, and motivate you to take action with your own well-being.
