From its inception, AAPM's prime purpose has been the education of those involved in healthcare practice management. Practices today often have a multi-million dollar turnover and have responsibilities that go with that figure.
Today's Practice Manager is often the Chief Executive Officer; they have responsibility for the financial management, human resources, planning and marketing as well as risk management.
They are progressive and determined to remain at the forefront of technology, systems and processes for the running of efficient and high-quality healthcare practices.
To meet the changing needs of healthcare management and to recognise those who must maintain the industry standards, AAPM has established its own Professional Development Program. This includes the AAPM Fellowship Program.
