When you join The National College of Physicians (NCP), you become part of a vital force of physicians who believe that physicians come first when it comes to patient care.
And that access to high-quality health care is a privilege, not a right.
Physicians were poorly represented at the table on Health Care Reform.
Now it appears that the only choice left for physicians with private practices is to work for hospitals.
See our new article "Six Biggest Gripes of Physicians Employed by Hospitals."
NCP is not a union.
We're the physicians of this country.
At NCP, we believe our license means we can save lives.
And that we should be honored for it. We earned it the hard way.
