FAAP: What does this mean?
I am curious to find out what the letters FAAP, which follow some pediatrician's names, means.Question:
The letters FAAP stand for Fellow in the American Academy of Pediatrics. This means that this particular physician has passed the board exam in pediatrics and has paid his money to be a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics. There are many board certified pediatricians who are members of the Academy but choose not to put the letters behind their names. If you have any question, just ask your pediatrician if he is board certified in pediatrics.Answer:
