== 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 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. Fellowship in ACP is a mark of distinction. It says that your doctor has made -- and continues to make -- special efforts to be a better doctor. Ultimately, it says your doctor cares about delivering good health care. == Fellowship in the ACP means that as a patient you can have confidence in your doctor. Through continual self-improvement and study, he or she adds to the knowledge and skills needed to deliver appropriate care for your medical needs, whether directly to you or with other specialists. == Your doctor is: * 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.) * Recognized by other internists for excellence and skill in medical practice, teaching, or research. * Pledged to keeping current with the latest advances in internal medicine. * Committed to professional activities and patient care. == Doctors must show that they are always growing and learning in order for the honor of Fellowship to be conferred. They may show this through activities such as teaching, hospital appointments, public service, community health planning, 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.
