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 and resources 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.

CME Offerings
Through live events, online, or self-study options, stay current on clinical issues with AAFP CME in formats that work for you.

This member benefit serves as your CME and professional portfolio, making it easy for you to report CME, log procedures, and track professional requirements online.

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.

Paymemt Reform Resources
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.

Family Physician Action Network
Join the Family Physician Action Network to unite with other family physicians and make a meaningful impact on health care policy. Receive insider information on the progress of health care in Washington, access network-only content, engage in and lead social media campaigns, and more.

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
This initiative also includes the Physician Health First web portal, designed to help inspire, energize, and motivate you to take action with your own well-being. Plus, the site allows you to check your own risk for burnout through the members-only Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) assessment.

New Physician Blog
Fresh Perspectives: New Docs in Practice is a great blog written by new physicians for new physicians. Topics cover everything from vaccinations and physician burnout to training and electronic health records.
