NYACP's Diversity Policy
The New York American College of Physicians’ membership comprises a diverse population of internists, subspecialists of internal medicine, and medical students. NYACP values diversity and views it as one of its greatest strengths. The College welcomes prospective members regardless of race, ethnicity, gender; religion, age, sexual orientation, nationality, disability, appearance, geographical location and professional activity, such as private practice, research, or academic medicine.

NYACP believes that a commitment to diversity strengthens the organization’s capacity to respond to the needs of its members and their patients, i.e., to recognize that diversity is an important aspect of infrastructure that enhances relevance and effectiveness.
