What do the letters FACP after your doctor’s name mean?
When you see the letters FACP after your physician’s name they mean that he or she is a Fellow of the American College of Physicians (ACP).
The American College of Physicians is the largest society of internists in the world.
An internist is a specialist who provides a non –surgical medical care to adults and adolescents.
Fellows in ACP are a special group of doctors who are dedicated to continuing education in medical practice, teaching or research. Fellowship is an honorary designation given to recognize ongoing individual service and contributions to the practice of medicine.
- Been certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine or another board acceptable to ACP. Certification requires having satisfactorily completed a minimum of 3 years of approved postgraduate training in internal medicine and passage of a rigorous 2-day examination. (This certification is sometimes waived because of other outstanding qualifications.)
- Been recognized by other internists for excellence and skill in medical practice, teaching or research.
- Demonstrated continuing scholarship and professional accomplishments.
To be elected a Fellow, doctors must show that they are always growing and learning. They may show this through activities such as teaching, hospital appointments, public service, continuing medical education, publishing scientific articles and advanced training.
They must also be recommended by other ACP Fellows who must attest to their character, ethics and excellence in professional medical activities.
