About MAFP

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.

2023-2025 Strategic Plan

The MAFP Board of Directors and staff began working on the foundation for the 2023-2025 plan in January 2022 with the commission and board surveys, commission meetings, and interviews of members and staff. These efforts aligned with the dissemination of the member services survey that was sent to all members. Vince Keenan, CAE, the strategic planner, compiled this data and presented it to the board at the June 11- 12 meeting at the Lodge at Old Kinderhook, Camdenton, MO. This plan is member-centric to help you provide the best care to your patients and to propel the organization forward as a leader in health care at the local, state, and national levels.

MAFP board members came to clear conclusions on the items they wish to include in the 2023-2025 plan. This infographic summarizes the plan’s focus and goals that will drive MAFP’s initiatives during the next 36 months. Keeping in mind that we are nimble enough to address any opportunity that arises for the benefit of Missouri’s family physicians. The last few years have taught us that we must be flexible and focused as an organization.
