Welcome to MAFP’s new website! Featuring a “members-only” section, MAFP is now able to provide our over 3,400 members more resources and information than ever before. Easy navigation gives you access to the latest news and announcements, advocacy issues, continuing medical education (CME) opportunities, physician resources on a variety of topics, MAFP Foundation updates, and more all available on any device! Take some time to look around. Please feel free to send any feedback and suggestions to MAFP as we continually make additions and revisions to provide you more of the information you need to improve the health of patients, families and communities in Michigan.
The Member Login is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week, by selecting the blue “Login” located on the top right of the MAFP homepage. To gain full access, log in using your AAFP ID. If you do not know your AAFP ID, call the MAFP office at 517.347.0098 for assistance. Please note, the first time you log in, your password will also be your AAFP ID until you go into your Profile to create a new password.
Speaking of profile … one of the first items to check out after you have logged in is your Member Profile. The “Login” button will change to “Profile” when you have successfully entered the website. Select “Profile” to review your contact information, and add your areas of expertise (those specific medical areas and topics of which you are most knowledgeable), any special accessibility or dietary needs for staff to be aware of when you attend MAFP events, and your primary and secondary practice type. Once you have added information to your profile, scroll to the bottom of the page and select “Update”!
As a member, there are several CME opportunities and events where you can save significantly on your registration fees. To take advantage of this benefit, log in before you register. Not only will you unlock the discounted rate, but your contact information will pre-populate in the event registration form to save you time from having to re-key information.
Navigating the Website
The new main navigation includes:
- About Us
