American Academy of Family Medicine

American Academy of Family Medicine was founded in 1947 to promote the science and art of family medicine. It is one of the largest medical organizations in the United States, with over 100,000 members. The American Academy of Family Medicine was instrumental in establishing family medicine as a recognized medical specialty; a certifying board was approved by the American Board of Medical Specialties in 1969. The American Academy of Family Medicine is headquartered in Leawood, Kansas. To fulfil its mission, the AAFP has four objectives: advocacy, practice enhancement, education and health of the public. In its advocacy efforts, the AAFP shapes health care policy through interactions with government, the public, business and the health care industry. Areas of advocacy include advancing health care for all, promoting the Patient-Centered Medical home model of care, and increasing the family physician workforce. The AAFP helps its members fulfil their practice and career goals by assisting their practices in becoming designated Patient-Centered Medical Homes, promoting practice transformation through education and communication, and assisting members in achieving financial success through optimal practice management. The AAFP offers its physician, resident, and student members Continuing Medical Education on topics related to family medicine. The AAFP promotes increased funding for undergraduate, graduate and continuing medical education, and strives to develop mechanisms that will increase the Part II maintenance of certification passing rate of family medicine residency graduates. To better the health of the public, the AAFP aims to take a leadership role in health promotion, disease prevention and chronic disease management. The AAFP works to involve family physicians in public health activities such as tobacco cessation, obesity prevention, and encouraging exercise and immunizations. The AAFP provides patients with free educational resources on its consumer health site. In 1992, the AAFP began offering membership to osteopathic physicians (DO) who completed residencies approved by the American Osteopathic Association.
