Welcome to the ACPM Resident Physician Section website! Founded in 1954, ACPM actively promotes the practice, teaching and research of preventive medicine. Our members are committed to disease prevention and promoting the health and wellness of individuals, communities and nations. ACPM is a physician-only membership constituency. Membership in the College requires that you possess a valid license to practice medicine or be a medical student. To join ACPM's Resident Physician Section (RPS), you must be a resident.
The ACPM Resident Physician Section
is the national voice of preventive medicine residents on issues effecting training, policy, and education. The College provides RPS members with educational resources and offers a forum for networking with many of the most innovative and experienced leaders in preventive medicine and public health.
RPS members receive full ACPM member benefits, including a subscription to the American Journal of Preventive Medicine (AJPM), and discounts on publications and event registration. RPS members may also vote in the College's elections, but are unable to serve in office (this privilege is reserved for ACPM Fellows).
We encourage you to become involved in ACPM--your professional society! Members who are involved often find that RPS membership serves as a gateway to many rewarding, professional experiences and networking opportunities. Preventive medicine is a rapidly changing specialty and offers a wide array of opportunities for growth and development. RPS encourages its members to seize these opportunities and work toward the betterment of the profession.
Joining the ACPM through membership in the RPS is an excellent start in achieving this goal! Why wait? Join RPS today!
