About ACPE

Tampa SkylineACPE is the nation's largest health care organization for physician executives — doctors who hold leadership and management positions — who want to boost their leadership skills while adding weight to their CVs. Since its founding in 1975, the primary focus of the College is to provide superior leadership and management skills to physicians and encouraging them to assume more active roles in the leadership and management of their organizations. It has grown exponentially in that time, from 64 members to more than 10,000.

ACPE faculty has conducted on-location classes in countries around the world. The College plans to continue to spread its influence globally and is currently pursuing several international initiatives.
