ACPM was established in 1954 as a national professional society for physicians committed to disease prevention and health promotion. Its members are engaged in preventive medicine practice, teaching, and research. Specialists in preventive medicine are uniquely trained in both clinical medicine and public health. Physicians trained in preventive medicine can be found working in primary care settings and managed care organizations, in public health and government agencies, in workplaces, and in academia, attempting to reduce the risks of disease, both in individuals and in groups within the population.
