AAHPM is committed to training and developing prepared leaders with a goal of strengthening not only their organizations but also the subspecialty of hospice and palliative medicine.
AAHPM Leadership Forum
The AAHPM Leadership Forum is an innovative collection of training opportunities for future leaders, developing leaders, or seasoned leaders. Its vision is to identify and refine nonclinical but equally critical leadership skills that hospice and palliative care professionals increasingly need for success.
Three distinct programs and types of learning experiences are available, including face-to-face interactive instruction, didactic instruction, and web-based self-study:
- AAHPM Ignite - a live preconference program at the Annual Assembly, equipping hospice and palliative care team leaders with an understanding and recognition of one's strengths and limitations as a leader.
- AAHPM Ascend - a live, intensive two-day program each Fall, featuring "deeper dives" exploring focused topics and leadership skills that hospice and palliative care professionals increasingly need for success.
- AAHPM Elevate - a collection of supplemental web-based, on-demand programs offered through American Association for Physician Leadership at a special rate for AAHPM members.
You can create your own customized and flexible learning pathway and select content based on your unique leadership development career goals.
