I joined the American College of Physician Executives in 1994. It was one of the best resources I’ve ever found for fledgling physician leaders. It is now called the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL). And it has continued to provide education and support for me and thousands of other physician leaders.
I thought it would be helpful to discuss the organization. It is clearly dedicated to promoting physician leadership. For more than 40 years, the AAPL has helped physician leaders develop their skills and enhance their careers. It has accomplished this through education, coaching, mentorship and by providing a supportive community of peers.
