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. Physician Affiliates may serve on ACP committees that have seats allotted for non-members.
Most new Fellows are advanced from current ACP membership. Physicians certified in internal medicine who are not currently ACP Members may be eligible for direct election to Fellowship in select circumstances. Direct Fellowship is a singular honor conferred on fewer than five percent of Fellowship applicants and qualifications nearly always include status as an academician or researcher with a national reputation, extensive publications, and an outstanding career.
For current members wishing to advance to Fellowship, please visit our dedicated requirements page.
For non-members wishing to be directly elected to Fellowship, please visit our direct election to Fellowship page.
