Apply for early career leadership group

The AAP Section on Early Career Physicians is seeking members for a new Early Career Leadership Programming Advisory Group. Applications are due by June 15, and five members will be selected for terms that run July 1 through June 20, 2023.

The advisory group will guide the formation of a new leadership training programming that aligns with equity, diversity and inclusion. Members also will focus on envisioning curricula, selection processes and accessibility through an equity lens and offer relevant, impactful leadership training for early career physicians, especially those underrepresented in pediatrics.

As part of the AAP Equity Agenda, the Board of Directors is committed to increasing the percentage of members from groups underrepresented in medicine that are serving in Academy leadership positions. Diverse candidates in terms of race, ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability or national origin are encouraged to apply. Questions?
