AAP California Chapter 1 (AAPCA1) offers unmatched opportunities for members to connect and engage with other members to inspire positive change at the local level:

  • Two CME conferences per year with opportunities for post conference networking.
  • Monthly Chapter Newsletter
  • Opportunity to participate in Chapter Committees

We are involved with pediatric training programs in Northern and Central California and our members at large (MAL) represent different areas of the region. Recognizing and acting upon local needs is the core purpose of AAPCA1. We strive to support our members at all levels.

If there is no MAL representing your area, we welcome you to become that leader.
