Our Mission Statement
The Rhode Island Academy of Family Physicians exists to promote the health of the patients, families and communities of Rhode Island by advancing the specialty of family medicine through education and advocacy.
Who We Are
The Rhode Island Academy of Family Physicians (RIAFP) is a 189-active, 13 Life, 50 Resident, and 400 student member of the Rhode Island affiliate of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the largest primary care physician organization in the United States.
Our organization supports ongoing physician education, works with residents in primary care, and advocates public policies to improve the health care system. We work with the Rhode Island Medical Society and the Rhode Island Department of Health, to achieve those aims.
Our members staff private practices and community health centers, deliver babies, make home visits, and treat patients at every hospital in Rhode Island. Our doctors work with schools, day care centers, nursing homes, and care for entire families from every community in the state.
