About the Michigan Association of Physicians of Indian Heritage
The Michigan Association of Physicians of Indian Heritage (MAPI) was founded in 1976 by a small group of gallant physicians of Indian origin. These founders defined and structured this organization as the first to support the international medical graduates of Indian origin. MAPI soon evolved into a larger entity as additional Indian physicians dedicated their time to the worthy causes of MAPI. In 1982, MAPI gave birth to a larger umbrella organization, the American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI), a national professional organization.
MAPI focuses primarily on issues surrounding practice of medicine by its members. It conducts educational activities through various professional channels and Continuing Medical Education (CME) meetings. Past speakers have included renowned physicians and high-ranking officers of various national medical associations, political leaders, and financial executives.
MAPI officers and members have voiced their opinions at both state and national levels. In addition, they have participated in medical associations throughout county and state levels in Michigan as well as at the national level in Washington D.C. Its members have consistently exhibited their abilities and reliance in various organizations including MAPI, AAPI, the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS), and the American Medical Association (AMA).
