Welcome to the website for the India Chapter of the American College of Physicians (ACP).

The American College of Physicians (ACP) is a diverse community of internal medicine specialists and subspecialists united by a commitment to excellence. Internists apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness. With 160,000 members in countries across the globe, ACP is the largest medical-specialty society in the world. Over 19,000 members reside outside of the U.S.

ACP came to India in 2012 and the Indian Chapter was established in January 2015. Today it is one of the fastest growing international Chapters. As on date we have 3,070 members. Since membership is free for medical students studying in medical colleges approved by the World Directory of Medical Schools (refer I request ACP members in India who engage with medical students to encourage them to register as members today.

ACP is known for excellence in our educational offerings. Members access free and discounted tools that help you stay up to date whether you're teaching or expanding your knowledge base for your practice.

ACP and Annals of Internal Medicine are using social media more than ever to communicate and share information relevant to internal medicine. ACP’s online Special Interest Groups offer physicians an opportunity to share experiences, questions and solve with their peers. Do download the apps from the App Store.

It is our endeavour to increase our membership in India in this financial dues year. This will not be possible without the support of each member. For more details visit
