American Association for Physician Leadership


A Journey Through Population Health


Population health can be defined as the application of public health principles to health care. It is how we improve the health of our patients and their communities- promoting wellness and prevention while mitigating the impact of chronic disease. At first glance, this neat and concise definition can create the illusion that population health is a simplistic topic. However, on the contrary, population health is a complex, multidimensional focus in healthcare, evidenced by the numerous challenges that manifest as barriers to the advancement of population health initiatives today. It is because of the persistence of these very challenges that physician leaders must develop enhanced knowledge and competence pertaining to the principles, goals, and strategies that advance population health initiatives.

A Journey Through Population Health is designed to aid physician leaders in developing a more comprehensive and actionable knowledge base around population health. Using video lectures, self-reflective inquiry, and interactive learning activities, this course will illuminate your awareness of both the complexity and scope of population health, equipping you with the perspectives and approaches to effectively lead in the healthcare setting with a deepened awareness of the impacts of population health factors on patient care. We will address the challenges faced and solutions created by 21st century healthcare providers. We will also discuss how prevention and quality outcomes are linked to an organization’s bottom line, leading to an exploration of the latest critical data, pivotal studies, and key viewpoints on population health.

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.
