The Kansas Academy of Family Physicians (KAFP) represents nearly 2,000 physicians and medical students statewide. It is the only medical society in Kansas devoted solely to primary care. Today, family physicians provide more care for the underserved and rural populations than any other medical specialty. Family physicians conduct approximately one in five office visits. Family medicine’s cornerstone is an ongoing, personal patient-physician relationship focused on integrated care.
The mission of the KAFP is to support and serve family physicians of Kansas as they advance the health of Kansans.
KAFP’s vision is to transform health care to achieve optimal health for all Kansans.
KAFP and its members are committed to care that is…
Equitable for all people
Centered on the whole person within the context of family and community
Based on science, technology and best available evidence
Supported by lifelong professional learning
Grounded in respect and compassion for the individual
