Haddad selected as AAP fellow


Dr. Fadi George Haddad, assistant professor in the department of pediatrics, was recently named a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatricians (AAP).

To qualify for this prestigious designation, a physician must have received initial certification in pediatrics from the American Board of Pediatrics, the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada or La Corporation Professionelle des Medecins du Quebec. The honoree also may qualify by having received initial certification in pediatrics from the American Osteopathic Board of Pediatrics prior to July 1, 1997. The physician must provide evidence to the board of directors of a minimum of five years of clinical experience in which all or substantially all of the applicant's professional activities in practice were with infants, children, adolescents and/or young adults.

Fellows of the AAP are recognized by their colleagues and the board of directors for exhibiting excellence in training leading to board certification, and for high ethical and professional principles and conduct.

Organized by 35 pediatricians in Detroit in 1930, the AAP's mission is to attain optimal physical, mental and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents and young adults.
