ACCP Mission: To promote the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of chest diseases through education, communication, and research.
Founded in 1935 by Murray Kornfeld, the ACCP has always been in the forefront of cardiopulmonary medicine. In the early years, the main focus of the College was to treat and prevent tuberculosis. As the ACCP membership grew in size and diversity of specialty, the ACCP broadened its focus to include the treatment and prevention of all diseases of the chest.
