Requirements for Physician Affiliate Membership
ACP’s Physician Affiliate membership category is for physicians who do not meet the requirements for full Membership in the College.
It is important to note that Physician Affiliates are excluded from voting, holding office and attaining Fellowship. They may sit on any committee or council that has open seats for non-members.
