Physician Leadership Journal Sample PDF


PLJ is published bi-monthly in digital format in January, March, May, July, September, and November.

The Physician Leadership Journal (PLJ) is the voice of physician leadership — your source for insights, ideas, and conversations relevant to professionals like you.

Each issue includes a section of peer-submitted articles that focus on medical leadership and healthcare delivery. These articles have passed the critical appraisal of our editorial board of Certified Physician Executives (CPE) from around the world. Articles in this section spotlight original research, operational interventions and findings, and discussions that orient readers to key topics in healthcare and physician leadership.

Subscription to PLJ is included as part of an annual membership or as a stand-alone subscription, as listed here.

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.
