By Sharing Best Practices Through Educational Opportunities.
In 2017, AAPM&R hosted several educational opportunities to facilitate learning and information sharing across diverse clinical and practice areas.
- NEW! STEP Ultrasound Certificate Program: STEP stands for Skills, Training, Evaluation and Performance. The STEP Ultrasound Certificate Program is a “multi-tiered” training program that teaches and assesses MSK and neurologic ultrasound skills using a progressive, competency-based curriculum. Developed by physiatrists for physiatrists, earning a certificate through this program means you will represent the highest standard in the field.
- NEW! Preconference Courses: Three in-depth preconference courses—Bold Leadership Strategies and Tools for Today's Health Care Environment; Controversies in Imaging; and The Physiatrist’s Role in Cancer Recovery—were developed by Academy members and helped physiatrists “Thrive Through Transformation” in the changing world of health care.
