Robert Cirincione, MD, Meritus Medical Center Executive Director

The American Association for Physician Leadership® education programs were an excellent discussion of issues of importance to physicians. Medical practice is complex and these courses provide valuable information for a physician to navigate various issues. The instructors were well prepared, energizing and knowledgeable. I would recommend the program to my colleagues.

Neil Roy, MD, Emergency Medicine

American Association for Physician Leadership® provided a wonderful opportunity for me to learn the nuances of administration while interacting with like-minded peers in my community. I would do it ten times over.

Drs. Rita Hanson and Brenda J. Bowers

We found the association very flexible and easy to work with as we designed and implemented our Physician Ministry Leadership Development Program.
