Where We Stand

The American College of Physicians works for you — providing internists with education, clinical support, practice resources, and advocacy for policy changes that will make a difference in your daily work, your professional development, and your patients’ health.

We know problems like administrative burdens, inadequate physician payments, high drug prices, and lack of access to affordable health care coverage are making it harder for internists to practice medicine, earn a living, and help patients. ACP also advocates for policies that improve patients’ health care and well-being. These advocacy efforts occur in parallel with our persistent push for better reimbursement for internists and the elimination of unnecessary administrative tasks that hinder your practice of medicine. We press legislators and regulators for changes that can successfully improve your daily work experience and free you up to focus on the care you were trained to provide.
