The Massachusetts Academy of Family Physicians is made up of physicians who go above and beyond their call of duty. Each individual provides a very important component to their community and to the people they serve.
The MassAFP Preceptor Hall of Fame is designed to recognize a physician who exemplifies the tradition of "Physician as Teacher", but does so generously, at a high level, over an extended period of time.
Massachusetts' Preceptor Hall of Fame will be honored at a luncheon during the Annual Meeting and Spring Refresher held in March.
