Creating Leaders of Change and Champions of Well-being

Leading Physician Well-Being Program | AAFP

Physician leadership has never been a more important skill for the family physician than it is today. Thoughtful and capable family physician leaders can provide stability in uncertain times for their office teams, among their health system colleagues, and within their community. This physician leadership enhances the quality of care that teams can provide to their patients, improves the morale of the care team, and helps communities stay focused on health-enhancing activities.

Leading Physician Well-being (LPW), developed by the AAFP, is a unique certificate program designed to help you develop the leadership skills you need to spearhead that change among the physicians and other clinicians in your practice or health care organization.

All AAFP active members are eligible for LPW. Residents are eligible if they have the support of their residency program and should submit a letter of support from their program director.

The application period for the 2024 program year is now open. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. The final date to submit an application is May 31, 2024. Final acceptance e-mails will be sent June 14, 2024.
