The Association of Chinese American Physicians (ACAP) is a not for profit professional organization of Chinese American physicians and Physicians that care for the Chinese community (www.acaponline.org). One of ACAP’s objectives is to promote quality healthcare through physician networking and professional development.  Since its inception in New York in 1995, ACAP’s national membership has grown to over 720 physicians, mostly from the metropolitan New York and New Jersey areas; we have chapters in Westchester, Philadelphia and Washington as well, among them, over 100 junior members are Chinese Medical Graduates (CMG) who are actively pursuing their dream to became a doctor in United States.

Eastern Chinese American Physicians IPA (ECAP) is a for profit medical professional organization of active private practice physicians in New York Metro area with either a Chinese heritage themselves or serve the Chinese population. ECAP was founded in 2005 and has nearly 200 physicians currently in practice in New York City covering all variety of specialties.

ACAP and ECAP have jointly hosted scientific conferences, an annual convention, health fairs, public service announcements and holiday celebrations for our members and their families since 2005.
