There are approximately 1000 physician members of the American Academy of Forensic Sciences (AAFS) dispersed into all but one of the ten AAFS Sections. Section membership does not necessarily define their disciplines, specialties, interests or activities. A survey was performed to explore the demographics of the physician members and their views on their Sections and the Academy as a whole. The responses were predominantly favorable but some areas of improvement were suggested. The detailed results also indicate the increasing globalization of the physician membership and the catholicity of medicolegal interests.
