FAAP Designation

The FAAP designation after a pediatrician's name stands for Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics. Pediatricians who maintain their FAAP designation have obtained board certification in pediatrics and made an ongoing commitment to lifelong learning and advocacy for children.

The FAAP designation is commonly used both with and without periods, for example:

Mary Smith, MD, FAAP
John Smith, DO, F.A.A.P.
