Welcome to the AAPIO Young Physicians and Students Section.
We are a section within the local chapter dedicated to the unique issues and needs faced by medical students, physicians in training, and physicians who have recently embarked on their professional track after training. This new section was formed to provide the “young physician” a community in which to develop a professional network, support one another’s professional development, and to learn from our colleagues.
We are a growing group with innovative, broad-minded, integrative ideas for the future of the global health care community.
Our objectives are:
- To provide a forum for discussion of key issues affecting the current and future health care industry and our role as the leaders of tomorrow.
- To create a supportive environment for professional development and Continuing Medical Education.
- To provide resources for academic development and pursuits including research opportunities, clinical rotations, international health rotations, and scholarship programs.
- To dedicate time to the health care needs of the local community addressing the disparity of health care resources.
