JACKSONVILLE – Charles R. Warren DO, FAAFP, a family physician in Fleming Island, has achieved the Degree of Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the national medical association representing nearly 134,600 family physicians, residents and medical students.
Established in 1971, the AAFP Degree of Fellow recognizes family physicians who have distinguished themselves through service to family medicine and ongoing professional development. This year’s fellowship class brings the
total number of AAFP Fellows to more than 17,500 nationwide. AAFP Fellowship entitles the physician to use the honorary designation, “Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians,” or “F.A.A.F.P.”
Warren joined Family Care Partners in 2004. He opened the FCP Argyle office in 2006 and moved to the Fleming Island office in 2016.
He’s originally from South Carolina and he completed his undergraduate training at the University of Florida and his medical degree from Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine.
Prior to joining FCP, Warren completed a 24-year career in the U.S. Navy, which included submarine duty and overseas duty, as well as hospital, clinic and teaching assignments. Warren and his family have been residents of Orange Park for more than 22 years.
Criteria for receiving the AAFP Degree of Fellow consist of a minimum of six years of membership in the organization, extensive continuing medical education, participation in public service programs outside medical practice, conducting original research and serving as a teacher in family medicine.
The AAFP was the first national medical specialty organization to require its members to complete a minimum of 150 hours of accredited continuing medical education every three years. It is the only medical specialty society devoted solely to primary care.
