AAPM is proud to continue to offer three AAPM Scholarships. The scholarship program aims to foster and promote continuing training and professional development for AAPM members. There are three funded scholarship course fees available and they are delivered by the University of New England Partnerships.

At AAPM, investing in our members and the professional of Practice Management is incredibly important to us. In today’s complex environment, the way a practice is managed plays a critical role in patient outcomes and AAPM recognises that one of the best ways to do that is to support Practice Managers.
