Physician Leaders

AHA Physician Alliance logo

The Alliance provides new resources, services and experiences on a range of issues, including clinician well-being, leadership models and health improvement, developed specifically for busy physicians within AHA-member organizations.

The Alliance’s work will be framed by three fundamental values that foster shared decision-making and forge a common language among all health care leaders – Lead Well. Be Well. Care Well.

  • Lead Well focuses on improving the health of the enterprise and developing collaborative teams to move organizations forward.
  • Be Well is about improving the health of clinicians and reducing administrative burden.
  • Care Well prioritizes better health for patients and communities.

With unique immersion experiences, virtual expeditions and webinars, Questions with Clinician Leaders podcasts, issue briefs, guides and toolkits, as well as dedicated educational tracks at AHA flagship meetings, the AHA Physician Alliance will support physician leaders in improving care for their communities. Furthermore, it will help clinical and administrative leadership collaborate effectively for better health of communities.

We believe the Alliance’s work will underscore the importance of physician relationships and guide better health and health care; and we encourage all physicians in AHA-member institutions to sign up to make the Alliance one of their professional homes.
