ACPE.org now points to PhysicianLeaders.org #leadership

Sunday, October 12, 2014

In case you missed the announcement, the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) is now the American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL). AAPL may cause you to think about Apple stock on NASDAQ, so it may be best to remember the new URL: PhysicianLeaders.org

Don't get this new website confused with PhysicianLeadership.org - that's a different organization.

ACPE is now: PhysicianLeaders.org

This is not the first time the organization has gone through a name change. When ACPE began in the mid-1970s, it was called the American Academy of Medical Directors (AAMD). Then, soon after the term “physician executive” was coined, the organization became the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE).

Article about re-entering clinical medicine

Friday, October 3, 2014

MedPageToday has posted an article about the costs of re-entering clinical medicine after a physician leaves for an extended period of time. The definition of "extended period of time" varies for each state medical board and many state boards make it very challenging to re-enter the practice of medicine after you have transitioned into a full-time non-clinical career.

The Primary Care Physician Re-entry Act has been proposed before Congress by Congressman John Sarbanes (D-Md.).

Mongan Commonwealth Fund Fellowship Program in Minority Health Policy

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

Apply for the Mongan Commonwealth Fund Fellowship Program in Minority Health Policy (formerly The Commonwealth Fund/Harvard University Fellowship in Minority Health Policy)

Achieving a high-performance health care system requires dedicated physician-leaders capable of transforming care delivery and promoting policies and practices that improve access to high-quality care for vulnerable populations, including racial and ethnic minorities and economically disadvantaged groups. Since 1996, the Mongan Commonwealth Fund Fellowship Program in Minority Health Policy has played an important role in developing such leaders.

Based at Harvard Medical School under the direction of Joan Reede, M.D., Dean for Diversity and Community Partnership, the year-long fellowship offers intensive study in health policy, public health, and management for physicians committed to transforming health care delivery systems for vulnerable populations. Under the program, fellows complete academic work leading to a master of public health degree at the Harvard School of Public Health, or a master of public administration degree at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. Fellows also participate in leadership forums and seminars with nationally recognized leaders in health care delivery systems, minority health, and public policy.
