The FAAP designation after a member's name stands for Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics and may only be used by AAP members in good standing who have obtained initial board certification in pediatrics or a surgical specialty board. Physicians who maintain their FAAP designation make 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.
