Welcome to American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin
Founded in 1982, the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin represents a conglomeration of more than 80,000
practicing physicians in the United States.
In addition, it also serves as a platform for more than 40,000 medical students, residents and fellows of Indian origin in this
country. The AAPI YPS/MSRF (Young Physicians Section/Medical Students’ and Residents’ Forum) runs under the main AAPI
umbrella to give representation to them. 1 in every 7 people in the USA is touched by the care of a physician of Indian origin at
any given time.
AAPI also has a charitable foundation – AAPI-CF – that spearheads free clinics and health fairs in India. To date, more than 19 such clinics are being actively run in various states of India under the AAPI flagship.
Every year, this mammoth cohort of physicians and physicians-to-be get together in a grand extravaganza – The Annual AAPI Convention – a beautiful blend of professional programs with cutting-edge CME along with a dash of color in the form of social events and exhibits featuring esteemed invitees from the United States and India.
AAPI is a forum to facilitate and enable Indian American Physicians to excel in patient care, teaching and research and to pursue their aspirations in professional and community affairs.
Promote professional solidarity in the pursuit of excellence in patient care, teaching and research. Bring American medicine the distinctive contributions from India, and advance the American creed of one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.
