Featured Experiences

Discover the Best Physician Leadership Courses and Networking Opportunities at the 2024 Fall Institute

Gain the knowledge and skills you need to take the next step in physician leadership. Our CME courses will help you acquire the CPE credential to make you stand out. 

Thought-Provoking Keynote Sessions

We'll set the stage for your Institute experience with a thought-provoking and inspiring opening session centered on leadership, engagement and innovation. 

Sunrise Wellness Activities

Start your morning right with a yoga or bootcamp class or a walk through the beautiful grounds of the Westin Kierland Resort. Get relaxed and centered and ready for an action-packed day.
Communities of Practice are designed in the format of a Learning Community. This session is organized around a common theme, question, or career goal. Learning focuses on the practical and is shared from both successful and unsuccessful experiences to create collective knowledge.

Advising Sessions

Our Education Advisors will help you create an individualized learning path that fits your schedule and goals. They will ask about your professional background, goals and whether you're interested in our CPE program, Master's degree prerequisite courses, or talk through which courses best fit your needs.

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.
