Information for the 2016 Call for Innovative Proposals ​ 

As the primary medical society for the specialty of physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), the Academy is focused on moving the specialty and you forward. And nowhere is that more evident than at our Annual Assembly.

Join us for THE largest gathering of PM&R physicians in the country—AAPM&R’s 2016 Annual Assembly! 

We’ll be “Moving Physiatry Forward” in the “Big Easy” with content focused on innovative patient care, changes impacting the business of medicine, and ways physiatrists can position themselves and the specialty for success.

Our Program Planning Committee is hard at work on this “must-attend” event, and we have some big things planned for 2016. Don’t miss out on innovative learning opportunities, non-stop networking and a variety of educational sessions and hands-on workshops—all dedicated to the diverse clinical and practice interests of today’s physiatrists. No other meeting brings together thousands of physiatrists from a variety of clinical areas who care for those with disabilities on a daily basis.

And speaking of innovative learning…

We’ll be introducing our Interactive Arcade at the 2016 Annual Assembly. Not the typical arcade with toys and games, but a total interactive experience for attendees to learn more about pain management—a hot topic in the world of health care. Various interactive activities will teach attendees about responsible opioid prescribing, how to reduce opioid-related harm, and ensure public safety.

A nod to the past as we move to the future

Because the specialty had its beginnings during World War II, it’s only fitting to host our President’s Reception at The National WWII Museum​. This “national treasure” tells the story of the American Experience in the war that changed the world. Come see why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today!​

Check back often as we'll be adding new information as it becomes available.​
