The American College of Physician Executives is becoming the American Association for Physician Leadership.

The association said it will broaden its programs and services and strive to “more fully support the physician workforce across the entire career span, from medical students to those in later career stages. This also includes physicians in clinical roles, non-clinical administrative roles and those on nontraditional physician career paths.” It also said that it has moved beyond just education and services for physicians and become as a resource for healthcare teams and organizations, as well as policy makers.

The group began in the mid-1970s as the American Academy of Medical Directors. It is based in Tampa, FL.
