ACP has formed strategic partnerships with several organizations to help tackle a wide variety of issues important to the College.
From heart disease and stroke to HIV screening, these collaborations provide an opportunity to advance the state of healthcare in the United States.
An initiative of the ABIM Foundation, Choosing Wisely is focused on encouraging physicians, patients and other health care stakeholders to think and talk about medical tests and procedures that may be unnecessary, and in some instances may cause harm. Learn More
HIV Screening Standard Care is a program developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It gives primary care physicians new tools to help ensure all patients are tested for HIV at least once in their life. A joint statement issued by ACP and the HIV Medicine Association "Screening for HIV in Health Care Settings" served as the basis of physician materials in this campaign. Learn More
