Physiatrist in Training Council (PHiT)

PhiT_rgbAll AAPM&R resident and associate fellow members belong to the Physiatrist in Training Council (PHiT). The PHiT Council focuses on providing valuable feedback on behalf of resident and associate fellow members to assist the strategic coordinating committees to support their needs through every year of residency and fellowship.

The Council is governed by an elected board that meets regularly throughout the year. The PHiT board focuses on developing and sustaining a strong resident and associate fellow community that provides a valuable member experience for all PM&R residents and fellows-in-training.

RC_30th_Anniversary_FNL_rgbAs your primary medical society, AAPM&R’s mission is to lead the advancement of physiatry’s impact throughout health care. That starts with investing in the future of our specialty—our residents!

AAPM&R is proud to recognize the work of our Resident Physicians Council (now Physiatrists In-Training Council)—30 years strong in 2018! Residents within the Academy provide valuable feedback and perspective to Academy leadership to ensure their needs are supported through every year of residency. For 30 years, the engagement of our resident members has been extremely valuable to the Academy and the specialty as a whole.

Stay tuned for more information on all the festivities we have planned to mark this momentous occasion.

  • PHiT Ambassador Program:
    Another volunteer opportunity is through AAPM&R’s PHiT Ambassador program. The Physiatrist in Training Council Ambassador program consists of a PGY2 from some PM&R residencies. We hope to have a resident from each residency in the near future. Each ambassador serves as a liaison from their program to AAPM&R. Ambassadors are asked to communicate messages to their resident colleagues and often providing feedback to AAPM&R. Thank you to this year’s Resident Ambassadors.
