Your membership to the AFFP and, by default, the KAFP has numerous bennefits to help you succeed in your practice. Below are the various resources available to you as both a national and chapter member of an association dedicated to the needs of all family practitioners and their communities.
Let us be your reminder system! Your continuing medical education credits are stored for you on the AAFP’s CME Records (CMER) Program. Having your CME stored with us results in an automatic reporting of your credits for recertification to the American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM). We will periodically contact you to ensure you have the necessary credits to maintain your membership, meet the requirements for the ABFM, qualify for the AAFP Fellowship, and for state medical licensure. Additionally, we will provide at your request printed reports for:
The AMA’s Physician Recognition Award.
Community hospital’s credentialing.
Application for state licensure renewal.
We are constantly developing valuable tools for managing your practice finances, negotiating managed care contracts, and choosing technology systems. Our current offering is:
Assistance with Managed Care Contracts
