The science and practice of wound healing and related care is developing rapidly toward specialty status.  To meet the needs of physicians in this increasingly demanding medical discipline, a physician-specific organization is required. The wound care association created to meet the specific needs of the physician is The Academy of Physicians in Wound Healing. The APWH was created by physicians to serve all prescribing physicians (MDs, DOs, and DPMs) in wound healing. The organization's goals and objectives include the following five aspects of wound healing practice that are required for success in today's ever challenging environment:

  • Education that represents in-depth clinical programming focused on diagnosis, medical/surgical management to "treat the disease as well as the wound"

  • Advocacy on behalf of physicians to CMS, other regulatory agencies, insurance companies, and the public at large

  • Legislative engagement to represent the physicians' perspective on issues dealing with healthcare delivery and initiatives to advance the physician patient relationship

  • Practice support including information to support operations and business efficiency

  • Advancement of wound healing to medical specialty status


Grandfathering in place during open enrollment

Members that join currently are doing so during Open Enrollment of the Academy. During this period, grandfathering is in place so that physicians who were granted the designation of Fellow or Associate in another recognized medical association will have that same designation as members of the APWH.
