They have demonstrated a commitment to physician leadership through membership, tenure and experience with the American Association for Physician Leadership and the health care industry. The Vanguard Program provides high-level programming and networking to match a physician's high degree of experience in leadership, education, achievement and dedication to improving the industry through physician leadership.
