ICAAP > About ICAAP
The Illinois Chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics (ICAAP) is an organization of approximately 2,000 pediatricians in Illinois. Primary activities include advocacy on behalf of children, families, and health professionals in Illinois; the provision of continuing medical education and other resources for pediatricians, pediatric specialists, and other child health care providers; and collaboration with other state organizations and agencies on programs and projects that improve the health and well-being of children.
ICAAP’s mission is to promote the right of all children to live happy, safe, and healthy lives, to ensure children receive quality medical care from pediatricians (the most qualified physicians to deliver this care), and to assess and serve the needs of its membership.
Instantly connect with a national network using the ICAAP Career Center. Job seekers can post a resume, search active job postings in pediatrics and related fields, and more. Employers can list available positions for a national network of job seekers with the ICAAP Career center as well.
