Transitional Membership

The American Academy of Family Physicians allows physicians who meet certain requirements to be in the Transitional Member classification for an annual fee of $125.

After graduation from medical school, the AAFP helps Transitional Members stay connected to the specialty with quality educational resources and a direct network to your colleagues. We’re giving family physicians like you a stronger voice worldwide. Call 913-906-6000 with questions about Transitional Membership.
