Resident and Fellow-in-Training Physician Council


All AAPM&R resident members belong to the Resident and Fellow-in-Training Physician Council (RFTPC). The RFTPC focuses on providing valuable feedback on behalf of resident members to assist the strategic coordinating committees to support their needs through every year of residency.

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

RFTPC Ambassador Program:
Another volunteer opportunity is through AAPM&R’s New RFTPC Ambassador program. The Resident and Fellow-in-Training Physician 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.
