Your AAFP membership brings you many benefits at the national level, and your CAFP membership brings those benefits on a state level.
At the State Capitol
The CAFP lobbies full time at the State Capitol during the legislative session, representing the pressing concerns our physicians face. Members are invited to participate in the Doctor of the Day program, where you will get an opportunity to care for legislators and their staff and see firsthand our impact as Family Physicians. We also partner with organization like the Colorado Medical Society and the Colorado Association of Family Medicine Residencies to amplify your voice.
In the Private Sector
The CAFP recognizes the ongoing business concerns our physicians face. We represent your voice at the table with payers, health systems, and employers on vital issues like payment reform.
In the Public Sector
There are numerous state and national agencies working to better healthcare for physicians and patients. The CAFP is your voice to those agencies, making sure public initiatives are in the best interest of Family Physicians and your patients.
Each year, the CAFP hosts our Annual Summit (formerly the Annual Scientific Conference). This four-day event is an opportunity for Family Physicians to earn CME, network with colleagues, and enjoy a getaway in a family friendly setting. Our members receive significant discounts on registration costs, and CME earned is easily reportable through the AAFP.
Other discounted educational events are hosted throughout the year, including DOT Medical Examiner Training, Self-Assessment Module (SAM) Courses, rural events, networking events, and events with medical students and family medicine residents. Select events are also available as webinars so members can join in from their practice, from home, or while traveling.
Members receive a free subscription to Colorado Family Physician, the CAFP’s quarterly magazine, and our monthly e-newsletter. Both publications will keep you up-to-date on educational topics, leadership opportunities, issues effecting your practice, and events for Family Physicians.
