Call for Proposals


Call For Proposals Now Closed

AAPL invites you to submit a proposal for the 2023 AAPL Annual Leadership Conference on June 9-11, 2023, at the JW Marriott in Chicago, Illinois.

Regardless of practice environment or administrative responsibility, at some level, all physicians are leaders, and the influence of physician leadership in all these environments is incalculable.

The 2023 AAPL Annual Leadership Conference brings together physicians of all levels to exchange knowledge, resources, strategies, and solutions to assist them in shaping the future of healthcare.

The theme, All Physicians Are Leaders, is an introspective look and call to action on how all physicians can reach their fullest potential by becoming and remaining more engaged while inspiring engagement in others.

All accepted presenters for the conference, regardless of session type, must register to attend the event. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to get in touch with us at

Before You Begin

For over 45 years.

The American Association for Physician Leadership has helped physicians develop their leadership skills through education, career development, thought leadership and community building.

The American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) changed its name from the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) in 2014. We may have changed our name, but we are the same organization that has been serving physician leaders since 1975.
