American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP)
Founded in 1947, the American Academy of Family Physicians represents nearly 94,000 physicians and medical students nationwide. It is the only medical society devoted solely to primary care. Nearly one in four of all office visits are made to family physicians. That is 207 million office visits each year - nearly 62 million more than to the next medical specialty. Today, family physicians provide the majority of care for America's underserved and rural populations. Family medicine's cornerstone is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focused on integrated care.
