Seeking Medical Directorship Subject Matter Experts

AAPM&R is seeking volunteers to assist the Academy in developing education programs and resources for physiatrists looking to serve or newly serving as a medical director in a rehabilitation facility (including SNFs and IRFs).

Criteria for Ideal Candidates

The Academy is seeking volunteers who are currently medical directors (or have been in the past) who are able to work with the Practice Preparedness Committee and potentially other work groups to:

  • Identify knowledge gaps and educational needs of physiatrists seeking a future medical director position.
  • Assist in developing education and resources, including defining learning objectives, outlining key topic areas and identifying faculty for education programs.

Time Commitment

Volunteers should be available to participate on the work group for 6-8 months. All members of the work group are expected to be active by participating on 4-6 conference calls, email discussions, responding to requests, and offering comments when necessary.
