Nov 13, 2012 9:53 AM

Southampton doctor Allen Lawrence Fein has recently achieved a degree of fellow from the American Academy of Family Physicians, a national medical association representing more than 100,000 family physicians, residents and medical students. The degree was conferred on more than 180 family physicians during a convocation ceremony on Saturday, October 20, in conjunction with the American Academy of Family Physicians’s annual meeting in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Established in 1971, the American Academy of Family Physicians’s degree of fellow recognizes family physicians who have distinguished themselves through service to family medicine and ongoing professional development, according to a statement released by the organization.

In order to attain the degree, Dr. Fein has had to have been a member of the organization for six concurrent years, extensive continuing medical education, participation in public service programs outside of medical practice, conducting original research and serving as a teacher in family medicine.
