AAPM&R Membership After Residency

Introducing New Pathways to Valuable Opportunities

Advancing You

Upon graduation from PM&R residency, you have a lot on your plate. AAPM&R spoke with residents and early career physiatrists to understand the challenges you face and the resources you need to successfully transition into practice.

As 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—you! AAPM&R is excited to offer 2 membership pathways to graduating PM&R residents, both of which lead to a free Annual Assembly, if you maintain membership! The new membership pathways below will launch in July 2018.


Advancing Physiatry

Maintaining your membership beyond residency not only provides valuable connections and resources, it’s a way to give back to your specialty. Your continued support and engagement in the Academy helps AAPM&R ensure that:

  • 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.

PGY4 Residents

You will be the first class to follow a pathway! If you are going into a fellowship, let us know by spring 2018.
