Next Board Meeting
NMAFP Office in Albuquerque
Notes from Feb 7, 2014 Board Meeting
What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
A patient-centered medical home integrates patients as active participants in their own health and well-being. Patients are cared for by a personal physician who leads the medical team that coordinates all aspects of preventive, acute and chronic needs of patients using the best available evidence and appropriate technology. These relationships offer patients comfort, convenience and optimal health throughout their lifetimes.
The New Mexico Academy of Family Physicians is the medical specialty association for Family Physicians in New Mexico. It is the largest medical specialty association in the state, with over 850 members.
Our members include practicing family physicians, residents in training, medical students with an interest in family medicine and retired family physicians. NMAFP is an independent chapter of the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), which has over 110,000 members throughout the United States.
