AAPI was founded in 1982 by a group of concerned Indian
American medical professionals with a simple goal: deal with the challenges
around immigration and licensing issues facing foreign medical graduates and to
create a level field for them.
The AAPI organization is a dynamic body, spearheading
legislative agendas and influencing the advancement of medical care not only in
the US, but internationally. AAPI’s impact is seen in areas such as
advocating for the increasing physician work force, participating in national
health initiatives such as obesity prevention, and investing in global health
education. Whether practicing in medically underserved areas such as inner
cities and rural communities or participating in cutting edge research &
academics, Indian physicians form an impressive group.
