The association’s Annual Meeting provides keynote speakers and workshops in addition to over 40 peer-led learning labs discussing contemporary challenges and innovative solutions.

(TAMPA, Florida – March 13, 2017) – For all physicians, the American Association for Physician Leadership® Spring Institute and Annual Meeting promises to be an important gathering considering the tumultuous state of U.S. health care. More than 500 physicians from across the country will come together to discuss the latest topics, trends and best practices as well as to build upon their leadership skills from April 19–23 at the Sheraton in Times Square in New York City. 

“It’s important for us as the only organization dedicated to supporting and educating on physician leadership to provide the platforms to not only develop and augment personal leadership and management skills, but also to support them in gaining insights on how to lead and manage the necessary changes within their clinical delivery systems,” said Dr. Peter Angood, MD, president and CEO of the American Association for Physician Leadership. 

The Annual Meeting concludes on Sunday, April 23 and closes with topics such as Health Policy Under the New Administration - What to Expect in the Next Four Years, and The Influencer- The New Science of Leading Change. The association’s stance is that, at some level, all physicians are considered as leaders and are best poised to lead change in health care. 

“Physicians are natural stewards of the clinical delivery enterprise — and the primary managers of health for populations, which makes them best-suited to lead adaptive initiatives, innovative strategies and novel campaigns designed to improve and manage the inevitable changes that await our health care systems,” Angood said. 

The association’s Annual Meeting provides keynote speakers and workshops in addition to over 40 peer-led learning labs discussing contemporary challenges and innovative solutions. Spring Institute courses include Preparing for the CEO Role, Three Faces of Quality, Strategic Thinking, Planning and Decision Making for Physician Leaders, and a Physicians in Management Series covering finance, communications, management, marketing, negotiation, quality, leadership and physician performance topics.
