About AAPI

Welcome to American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin

Founded in 1982, the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin represents a conglomeration of more than 80,000 practicing physicians in the United States.

In addition, it also serves as a platform for more than 40,000 medical students, residents and fellows of Indian origin in this country. The AAPI YPS/MSRF (Young Physicians Section/Medical Students, Residents and Fellows Section) runs under the main AAPI umbrella to give representation to them. 1 in every 7 people in the USA is touched by the care of a physician of Indian origin at any given time.

AAPI also has a Charitable Foundation (AAPI-CF) that spearheads free clinics and health fairs in India. Currently 7 such clinics are being actively run in various states of India under the AAPI flagship.

Every year, this mammoth cohort of physicians and physicians-to-be get together in a grand extravaganza The Annual AAPI Convention, a beautiful blend of professional programs with cutting-edge CME along with a dash of color in the form of social events and exhibits featuring esteemed invitees from the United States and India


AAPI physicians represent only 10% of all physicians in the United States but service approximately 30% of the US patient population.


Many have fostered personal relationships with members of Congress (as well as the highest levels of Government in India) that are invaluable assets to influencing legislation and insuring appropriate, patient-focused healthcare reform.


Our business partners can be assured of a receptive audience and, once engaged, a loyal client and ambassador of the product and company.
