Clinical Privilege Request


Effective from __/__/__ to __/__/__
Family medicine is the medical specialty which provides continuing, comprehensive health care for the individual and family. It is a specialty in breadth that integrates the biological, clinical and behavioral sciences.

Core privileges within the department of family medicine should reflect the core curriculum and training offered in accredited family medicine residency programs. The categories and core privileges listed are based on the “Program Requirements for Graduate Medical Education in Family Medicine,” a publication by The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) (, and the “Recommended Curriculum Guidelines for Family Medicine Residents” endorsed by the American Academy of Family Physicians ( Resources for family physicians and hospitals for special non-core privileges can be found at the AAFP website at, including the AAFP position paper on colonoscopy found at

Note: Appendix A is NOT incorporated by reference into the Core document but instead is to be used by an applicant when seeking privileges when they determine it would be to their benefit. There is no expectation that every physician graduating from a Family Medicine program will have been trained/be competent in all listed procedures. It is the responsibility of the Family Medicine department chair to forward only those requests for privileges that have been appropriately reviewed and vetted at the department level. Alternatively, Appendix A does not represent the entire scope of family medicine. Utilizing Appendix A as a mechanism to restrict privileges for family physicians by interpreting the appendix as a comprehensive delineation of services offered by family physicians would be incorrect.
