The Future Leaders Conference is proudly presented in partnership with the ACOFP Foundation.

Taking place June 16–18, at the Hilton San Diego Gaslamp Quarter in San Diego, California, the 2022 ACOFP Future Leaders Conference is designed for outstanding residents and physicians (who have been in practice five years or fewer) who are interested in achieving a greater awareness of their leadership style and its impact on their professional performance. 

The Future Leaders Conference creates a learning experience where attendees will participate in activities with the goal of:

  • Maintaining and prioritizing personal balance
  • Leading and managing change
  • Understanding strengths and maximizing the talents of others
  • Learning what influences leadership
  • Connecting with peers and ACOFP leaders 

Participants will walk away with a greater awareness of their skills and leadership styles by participating in this learning by doing program format.

The ACOFP Future Leaders Conference is a limited-registration event. Because of the community nature of this experience, participants must plan on being present for all activities. ACOFP will cover the registration, hotel and food expenses. Attendees are responsible for their transportation expenses.
