The American College of Preventive Medicine (ACPM) is a professional medical society of more than 2,000 preventive medicine physicians dedicated to improving the health and quality of life of individuals, families, communities, and populations through disease prevention and health promotion.

ACPM was founded in 1954 to create a professional home for the growing number of board-certified experts in preventive medicine. It was chartered as a nonprofit organization two years later in 1956.

ACPM provides a dynamic forum for the exchange of knowledge and practice advancement for preventive medicine specialists. We offer high-quality continuing medical education, resources for ongoing professional development, networking opportunities, and advocate for the important role of preventive medicine in our healthcare system.
