Exclusively Sponsored by the American
College of Physicians
The American College of Physicians (ACP) has exclusively sponsored The Doctors Company’s medical malpractice insurance program since 2001. We have earned the college’s sponsorship through our fierce commitment to relentlessly defend, protect, and reward our members.
As the nation’s largest physician-owned medical malpractice insurer, The Doctors Company has unparalleled insight into the broad range of claims in internal medicine. The ACP Member Insurance Committee provides oversight of the program and helps identify the important professional liability insurance issues impacting ACP members and internal medicine overall. Our chairman and CEO, Richard E. Anderson, MD, is a Fellow of ACP.
Backed by the financial strength of $4.3 billion in assets and a membership of 75,000 physicians nationwide, The Doctors Company offers ACP members a unique combination of coverage features, aggressive claims defense, unrivaled protection, and tangible economic benefits.
