American College of Physicians

The American College of Physicians (ACP) supports the Choosing Wisely® campaign, which complements and builds upon ACP’s ongoing efforts in its High Value, Cost-Conscious Care initiative to help physicians provide the best possible care to their patients while simultaneously reducing unnecessary health care costs. Founded in 1915, ACP is the largest medical specialty organization and the second-largest physician group in the United States. Our 132,000 members include internal medicine physicians and related subspecialists. ACP is committed to producing evidence-based clinical recommendations; educating physicians and patients about the benefits, harms and costs of an intervention; and providing guidance about reducing the unsustainable costs of health care while preserving or increasing the delivery of high-value, high-quality care.
