Founded in 1985 by Dr. Sunder Mansukani, Asian Indian Professionals (AIP) is one of the largest regional groups of Asian Indian Physicians and Professionals! Our members include people at various stages in their professional careers. AIP is a local chapter and patron member of American Association of Physicians of Indian Origin (AAPI), the largest ethnic medical organization in the United States. However, whereas AAIP’s mission is to create a forum to facilitate and enable Indian American Physicians to excel in patient care, teaching and research and to pursue their aspirations in professional and community affairs. Dr. Mansukani’s vision extended beyond the medical profession.
AIP is open to all professionals of Indian descendent and our primary focus is on the professionals of tomorrow. Thus, our chapter raises funds and maintains an endowment for a scholarship program for deserving college bound students from the greater Philadelphia region.
