Thank you for your support as an Academy member!


With YOUR insights and those from thousands of physiatrists across the country, AAPM&R worked to define a BOLD vision for PM&R. The path to this vision started with the acquisition of qualitative and quantitative input from physiatrists with diverse clinical expertise and background. It is FROM the specialty and FOR the specialty, making it YOUR vision for the future of physiatry.

AAPM&R is adopting physiatry’s vision to be the Academy’s vision, so that we can support YOU and the path forward.

Physiatrists are the essential medical experts in value-based evaluation, diagnosis, and management of neuromusculoskeletal and disabling conditions.

Physiatrists are indispensable leaders in directing rehabilitation and recovery, and in preventing injury and disease.

Physiatrists are vital in optimizing outcomes and function early and throughout the continuum of patient care.


Fully launching in 2018, AAPM&R will be putting the spotlight on members and their practices as well as sharing ways for ALL members to lead in new innovative and influential ways. Learn more at www.innovatorsandinfluencers.org.
