Pin to MyACP

The ACP Leadership Academy provides members with training and resources to prepare you for leadership roles in your organization and in the greater healthcare environment.

The Leadership Academy’s Formal Leadership Training and Certificate in Physician Leadership programs will no longer accept new applications and enrollees.

To continue to live up to our mission to enhance the quality and effectiveness of health care by fostering excellence and professionalism in the practice of medicine, ACP is evolving our programs, products, and services. Our aim is to provide ongoing support for the career and professional development of internal medicine physicians from training through retirement. We are in the process of completing a comprehensive member needs assessment to guide our programming. In the meantime, check out the Leadership Academy Webinar Series, ACP Advance QI Curriculum and QI Leadership Training, and ACP Webinar Series to support your leadership training and professional development needs. We look forward to connecting with you soon.
