THE 2017 REPORT TO MEMBERSHIP

A Note from Your President

Dear AAPM&R Member:

It has been a transformative year for both the Academy and the specialty, thanks to the unwavering efforts of our countless member volunteers. Our transformation, to the wide-ranging aspiration of success for the specialty, and success for all of you, is a significant venture that could not come to fruition without the support of you and your peers. 

Our efforts to advance the specialty so that we all thrive, collectively and individually, require the strong support of physiatrists. The Academy must have the backing and resources to implement these critical pursuits.  We thank you for your continued support and membership, and we ask that you reach out to your practice partners, colleagues from your medical center or city, and those you might see at a state society meeting, who currently are not Academy members. They, too, will benefit if we are all in this together. To accomplish our ambitious goals for the specialty, we need vigorous support from many more. As you witness the implementation of what is outlined below, be an enthusiastic evangelist to others who are not members.  

There is only one Academy, that with your support will ensure that the specialty we love doesn’t just survive, it thrives! Thank you for your membership, engagement, and ongoing support of your primary medical society.

Regards,

Steven R. Geiringer, MD, FAAPMR
AAPM&R Immediate Past President

Preparing Members for Success
Individual members are equipped for success throughout their career. 

Dynamically Engaging Membership
Members are actively engaged in ensuring the transformation of the specialty.  

Enhancing Organizational Strength

A Membership Update

What's New for 2018? Even More Value! 

In 2018, your AAPM&R membership is even more valuable and exciting:

  • Continued representation in Washington D.C. and beyond to support the values of physiatry—priceless!
  • Free resources to meet quality reporting and MOC requirements—valued at $440!
  • Complimentary access to the PM&R Physician Compensation Survey Report—valued at $485!
  • Significant discounts to in-person and online education—savings are typically 50% or more!
  • Complimentary issues of PM&R, the Academy’s scientific journal—valued at $400!
  • Advancing PM&R Bold—AAPM&R is adopting physiatry’s vision to be the Academy’s vision, so that we can support you and the path forward. This means more resources, more education, and more engagement with the entire PM&R community—priceless.

Learn more about our new initiatives and how your membership dues support those efforts.

Starting in 2016, AAPM&R enhanced the value of membership by giving our members resources to meet current, fundamental American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR) Maintenance of Certification® (MOC®) requirements, including:

  • One complimentary self-assessment exam for practitioners (SAE-P) - worth 8 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ to meet your ABPMR MOC® Part II requirement.
  • Complimentary access to all Practice Improvement Projects (PIPs) – worth 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ to meet your ABPMR MOC® Part IV requirement.

This value will continue into 2018! Renew your 2018 dues, and receive another complimentary SAE-P to help meet your mandates.
