  • Together, we are 55-thousand voices for children. Here’s what our membership looks like: Over 77% of Board Certified Pediatricians are national members of the AAP Over 25% of Fellows are Sub-Boarded Pediatric Subspecialists or Pediatric Surgical Specialists Over 40% of Members are Under the Age of 40. Over 90% of Residents are AAP members, making up over 9,500 members and making the largest section in the AAP.
  • The overall organization of the AAP is like a triangle with the AAP resting on the membership and the state chapters… Each point on the triangle influences and depends upon the other two points, and information flows back and forth between all three. The sixty-six AAP Chapters address pediatric needs at the state level.
  • The AAP is divided into 10 districts. At the national level each district has a chair and vice-chair. The District Chair sits on the Board of Directors for the AAP. At the resident level we also have leadership for each district, District Coordinator and Assistant District Coordinator which mirror the chair and vice-chair. This map helps to locate which District your program resides in.
  • The AAP has more than 50 sections, which also focus on specific child health topics, and can also create policy statements. But sections have many more members… and their main purpose is to give pediatricians a means to gather knowledge about a particular area of interest .
  • Why should you be an active member in the AAP? Because they follow your career path, supporting your changing needs each step of the way. There is a program devoted to Medical Students. The AAP’s largest section is a section devoted to Residents. There are specific programs and services for Fellows-in-Training, Pediatricians waiting to take Boards, Boarded Pediatricians, Sub-Boarded Su-specialists, and Credentialed Surgical Specialists. There is even a group for retired Pediatricians.
  • The AAP offers it members multiple resources in the form of publications and web-based educational information, CME, and links.
  • The AAP is very active in legislation at the federal and state levels; as well as on campaigns, policy statements and practice management guidelines to help provide the best health care for children in a conducive practice environment for pediatricians.
  • You can find these and many other policy and practice management guidelines on the AAP website.
  • No matter what the stage of your career, there are many good reasons to be a member of the AAP. They are: Advocacy Scholarship and grants Research Benefits And Leadership opportunities Networking opportunities at local and national meetings Most importantly as a member you belong to an organization that creates better lives for kids
  • The website provides the opportunity for residents to find resources at their fingertips including information regarding education, advocacy, grants and leadership opportunities.
  • Take the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the website. We look forward to your feedback and the website is updated regularly so your opinion counts!
  • Find out what’s going on the the AAP Resident section through the Resident Report. Provides insight and information to residents regarding advocacy, practice of medicine, personal experiences, and educational opportunities.
  • An electronic version can also be found on the Resident Section website
  • The Resident Section also provides opportunities for residents to present their research, receive grants, and enjoy an expense paid trip to the National Convention and Exhibition (fondly known as the NCE).
  • Interesting Cases are presented at the Resident Section Annual Assembly at the NCE. 10 Cases are presented with the previously mentioned Resident Research posters and one of these case presentation posters will be selected for publication in Pediatrics in Review .
  • Those interested in exploring the world can find opportunities for additional funding through the International Travel grants awarded annually by the Resident Section and Section on International Child Health.
  • Many resident are faced with financial hardship and the AAP has provided scholarship to many resident’s. In 2001, 63 out of 173 applications were funded.
  • The Resident Section is also very active in community advocacy and has funded up to 3 Anne E Dyson awards annually at the Resident Section Annual Assembly to residents with exceptional advocacy projects.
  • Another opportunity for funding for community advocacy is through CATCH (community access to child health) grants which are provided for both planning and implementation of advocacy projects.
  • Involvement within the AAP Resident Section does provide other benefits such as travel grants to help attend the NCE. Each residency program delegate will receive a $500 grant when they attend the Resident Section Annual Assembly at the NCE.
  • We’re proud of what the AAP Resident Section and the AAP have been able to accomplish so far. For example, The Resident section passed a resolution recommending there be an evaluation of resident work hours by the AAP, ACGME and other organizations and played an integral part in coordinating efforts with the ACGME and the Board of Directors for the AAP in the implementation of the duty hours requirements. The Resident Section has also asked the AAP to address the issue of the increasing shortage in sub-specialists which so affects both resident education and patient care. As well as address the large financial burden that pediatricians face as they enter into practice and how this may defer some residents to enter subspecialty practice. There are many more resolutions regarding resident specific issues which have passed through the resident section to the executive committee level of the AAP.
  • For those you have a desire to learn more about the legislative process and how to lobby for children and physician issues, the AAP provides a wonderful hands on opportunity at the AAP Federal Affairs office in Washington DC.
  • If you are unable to commit to an entire month, the Committee on Federal Government Affairs and the Committee on State Government Affairs provides a 3 day legislative conference each year that provides a condensed curriculum on legislative advocacy and effective interaction with elected officials.
  • Preparing for the Boards. PREP provides a focused review of the majority topics covered by the Pediatric Boards. Much of this information can be obtain on the AAP national website and through links on the Resident Section website.
  • There are so many ways you can become involved with the AAP. You can contact your local Chapter and tackle issues in your backyard. You can focus on your area of interest and join one of our Sections… or one of our Committees As I mentioned, you can improve community health through CATCH... Take part in research through PROS, or through Focus Groups. Or become a liaison for the Resident Section to another section or organization that is of interest to you.
  • There are many opportunities to have a leadership role in the Resident Section. Ideally each program has a delegate who helps with coordination of local activities and communication to members in their program. There are dozens of liaison positions that allow Resident Section members to participate in several other sections of the AAP, other national medical organizations. Each district has both an Assistant District Coordinator and a District Coordinator who are active members of the executive committee. These two members work to distribute information, encourage participation and coordinate activities as a local and national level. The Resident Section Executive Committee also has a Secretary, Vice Chair and Chair who orchestrate the committees activities. Elections are held annually during the Resident Section meeting, at the National Convention and Exhibition, to fill the 10 ADC, 10DC, Secretary and Vice Chair positions.
  • Elections are held annually during the Resident Section meeting, at the National Convention and Exhibition, to fill the 10 ADC, 10DC, Secretary and Vice Chair positions.
  • Each Program Representative has several different roles that include: Being a liaison between the District Leadership and the residents. Assisting the district Coordinator and Assistant District Coordinator with development and implementation of activities, such as job fairs or advocacy days. Encourage medical students that rotate through the program to become involved in Pediatrics and the AAP. Finally, attend the yearly National meeting and bring local problems and concerns to the attention of the District Leadership and the executive committee.
  • The Resident Section has multiple liaison positions that help to foster communication between AAP Committees, Sections and affiliated organizations with the AAP resident section. These liaisons help provide insight regarding resident concerns and needs to their respective organization.
  • Each Program Representative has several different roles that include: Being a liaison between the District Leadership and the residents. Assisting the district Coordinator and Assistant District Coordinator with development and implementation of activities, such as job fairs or advocacy days. Encourage medical students that rotate through the program to become involved in Pediatrics and the AAP. Finally, attend the yearly National meeting and bring local problems and concerns to the attention of the District Leadership and the executive committee.
  • There are many reasons to be active in the AAP during residency and into practice. The AAP offers you leadership development opportunities. Through the AAP, you gain career development and a personal employment network. When the media calls, the media relations team will help prepare you for that TV or newspaper interview, and help you promote your practice and your profession. The young physicians section helps you to move from training to practice. As a member you will have access to tools and training to help with practice management. And they offer you discounted insurance for your car, life and practice.
  • Finally, you should become a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics because we are striving to improve the Health Systems under which you now work. Not only has our legal complaint against HCFA resulted in steps toward improved Medicaid reimbursement, but we’re working toward improving reimbursement in ALL health systems. In the meantime, we offer our members programs, tools, and techniques to thrive within managed care. We are measuring quality of care to help improve our profession. We provide Practice Management Tools and Resources to assist you in running your business. And we give you opportunities to use your expertise to improve the health care of children in your communities, through CATCH-Community Access to Child Health. And most of all we advocate for the health of all children.
