The American College of Correctional Physicians (ACCP), formerly the Society of Correctional Physicians (SCP), is dedicated to the professional development of physicians in the specialty of correctional medicine.

ACCP members are united through the goal of improving public health by examining issues specific to the incarcerated and identifying solutions for medical professionals.

We meet the needs of correctional physicians through education, advocacy, networking, and avenues of communication. 

The ACCP supports and provides leadership to our members challenged with the internal and external obstacles to the care of the incarcerated.  

Join us. Correctional medicine is one of the most challenging careers, but can be one of the most rewarding. With your support, the ACCP will continue to be the nationally recognized voice of correctional medicine.
