What should I expect?

Expect to receive honest advice and thoughtful guidance. Mentoring is a collaborative relationship between two people where the aim is for the more seasoned leader to help guide and support the upcoming leader in both personal growth and professional development.  It is a learning and developmental relationship between someone with vast knowledge and someone willing to learn. The success of this relationship will be based on reciprocity, mutual respect, clear expectations, personal connections and shared values.

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.
