Academy of Pharmaceutical Physicians and Investigators
The Academy of Pharmaceutical Physicians and Investigators (APPI) has a simple mission: "To enhance the proficiency of pharmaceutical physicians and physician investigators, the Academy shall promote the acquisition and dissemination of knowledge concerning therapeutic action, investigation and development of medicines and diagnostics, and the protection of the welfare of patients and study subjects." There was an organization called the American Academy of Pharmaceutical Physicians (AAPP), but they folded into the Association of Clinical Research Professionals (ACRP) and formed the APPI. In other words, the former AAPP is now the APPI. Wow, can you keep up with all these acronyms?
