We’re grateful to have you as a member at the North Carolina Academy of Family Physicians. That’s why we want to make sure we keep serving you, the specialty of Family Medicine, and its improved practice for both physicians and patients in North Carolina.
Renewing (or reinstating) your NCAFP membership helps us do that.
There are three ways to pay your dues through the AAFP:
When you pay your dues, you also have two options to maintain your future dues payments: choosing the annual auto-payment option, or choosing the monthly instalment option. We recommend either option, because they each keep you from juggling dues payments every year.
Every three years as an AAFP member, you need to complete a total of 150 hours of CME. That includes 75 AAFP prescribed credits and 75 AAFP prescribed or elective credits.
The NCAFP files all the credits you earn when you attend our CME events as a member.
But if you need to renew or reinstate your membership for unreported CME, you’ll need to report it directly to the AAFP. You can do that through the online CME portal, emailing the AAFP Member Resources Center at firstname.lastname@example.org, or calling 1-(800) 274-2237.
If you’re not sure what counts as CME you should report, here are several examples:
We recommend that you review our CME Requirements overview to clarify what you need to report and how the activities are classified. You can also visit three resources at the AAFP:
