Welcome to APWH: The Academy of Physicians in
Wound Healing’s Website
The science and practice of wound healing and related care is developing rapidly toward specialty status.  To meet the needs of physicians and physicians extenders in this increasingly demanding medical discipline, a physician-oriented organization is required. The wound care association created to meet the specific needs of the physician and their physician extenders 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.  In 2017, the APWH Board unanimously voted to open a new affiliate membership category for physician assistants (PA) and in 2018 a new category was opened for nurse practitioners (NP). 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.
