The Association of Med-Peds Program Administrators (AMPPA) is an organization dedicated to learning and sharing members’ unique knowledge base with one another and with the greater med-peds community for the purpose of supporting the education of med-peds physicians.

AMPPA has its own listserv that has only Med-Peds administrators as members.  It is a great way to connect and get help from others who share the unique position of managing med-peds residents and coordinating efforts between internal medicine and pediatric residency programs.  Those interested in joining the listserv should contact Pam Hritzkowin at [email protected]‐health.org.
