The American Academy of Family Physicians allows physicians who meet certain requirements to be in the Life Member classification for a one-time fee of $350. Life members have no continuing education requirements. Although Life members cannot hold office, they may vote and have the floor at the Congress of Delegates.
Requirements for life membership include:
– Must have been an Active member for a minimum of 25 years and 5 years of continuous membership immediately prior to election as a Life member
– Must meet one of these two requirements:
— age 70 or older
— totally retired
