The Missouri Academy of Family Physicians (MAFP) is a non-profit professional medical society of more than 2,400 physicians, residents and medical students across the state. Headquartered in Jefferson City, MAFP is dedicated to optimizing the health of patients, families, and communities of Missouri through patient care, advocacy, education, and research.
Founded in 1947, MAFP was the first chapter of the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP). AAFP represents 134,600 physicians and medical students nationwide. It is the only medical society devoted solely to primary care.
Family physicians conduct approximately one in five of the total medical office visits in the United States per year. Today, family physicians provide more care for America’s underserved and rural populations than any other medical specialty.

MAFP leaders traveled to Camdenton, MO in the fall, 2018, to attend the Academy’s strategic planning session. Greg Meissen, PhD, facilitated the lively discussion among board members, AAFP delegates and alternate delegates, commission chairs and the MAFP staff.
The commitment of these leaders allowed a thorough review of the Academy’s mission and vision statement, assess performance of the previous strategic plan, and ultimately, look to the future. This out-of-the-box thinking and brainstorming helped craft this visionary plan for the MAFP. To view the 2019-2021 Strategic Plan, click here.
