The changing demographics of younger physicians have a profound impact on defining future member value. In 2012 the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) launched the Pediatrician Life and Career Experience Study (PLACES). In this unique longitudinal project, the AAP tracks the professional and life experiences of 1,800 pediatricians across their careers, including their career paths, personal life changes, career satisfaction, work-life balance, work environment, and daily stressors. The session will describe PLACES and highlight examples of data used by leadership.
