Renew Your Dues

Moving Physiatry Forward

AAPM&R has been on a journey since 2016, gaining member input to create a new vision for the specialty. We gathered input from thousands of members and ultimately identified and created a unified vision for physiatry:

  • Physiatrists are the essential medical experts in value-based evaluation, diagnosis, and management of neuromusculoskeletal and disabling conditions.
  • Physiatrists are indispensable leaders in directing rehabilitation and recovery, and in preventing injury and disease.
  • Physiatrists are vital in optimizing outcomes and function early and throughout the continuum of patient care.

Now, the Academy is focused on how we can transform the specialty and make this vision a reality. To do this, we need the entire specialty to support this effort and get involved. We are stronger together!
