A Message from the President


The Association of Anesthesiology Program Administrators and Educators (AAPAE) Council and I would like to welcome you to our national organization. This group serves as a forum to share best practices, collaborate on initiatives and research, as well as a community of practice specific to our unique role in medical education. We formed in 2014 and were approved in 2015 to organize under the SAAAPM umbrella.

We strive to continually develop and build a sense of community. We want this community to be one in which we feel comfortable talking to and collaborating with peers. We also aim to promote our peer coaching program where tenured administrators share resources and best practices and give guidance to new professionals in our field. We’ve held two national meetings in November 2016 and 2017 in conjunction with the SAAAPM annual meeting. Our meetings serve as a place where we can obtain information from and interact with leaders from the ACGME and ABA, showcase and highlight innovations within our programs, and most importantly, where we can learn and grow as professionals in a supportive and collaborative environment.

Please take a few minutes to look around our website, visit our resources page and learn more about the council members who are eager to make this new organization successful. Come back often! Please let us know how we can make this site more useful to you.

We are looking forward to working together to shape the future of our organization.

Leslie Coker Fowler, MEd
President, AAPAE 2017-2019
