What is the hotel deadline?

AAPM&R is proud to offer discounted rates for Annual Assembly attendees exclusively with these hotels. Reservations are made on a first-come, first-served basis. The cutoff date for discounted hotel rooms was September 21, 2022.

Is the Baltimore Convention Center accessible? What about other conference locations?

AAPM&R conferences are ADA compliant. We strive to take the appropriate steps required to ensure that no individual with a disability is excluded, denied services, segregated or otherwise treated differently. Individuals requiring special assistance must contact AAPM&R for further information. All requests for special accommodations under ADA must be made allowing enough time for evaluation and appropriate action by AAPM&R. You can also read the Accessibility Letter on page 7 of the Official Program. If you have questions related to accessibility, please do not hesitate to reach out to Customer Service at info@aapmr.org or (847) 737-6000 for assistance.

How to claim your CME

The 2022 Annual Assembly (AA) provides the opportunity to earn up to 156.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. You can claim credit for ALL educational sessions you attend live at AA, or watch on-demand. Live sessions (including Member Community sessions taking place virtually October 10-14) will be recorded and made available on-demand in the virtual AA platform until February 1, 2023.

After February 1, all content will be converted over to AA Rewind 2022, which you can access through the Academy’s Online Learning Portal. As part of your registration, you will have access to AA Rewind 2022, so you can continue to view great content and claim your CME. Please note that events taking place at AA that require an additional fee (such as Pre-Assembly sessions and Skills Labs) will not be included in the AA Rewind 2022.

To claim CME, you will be directed to the Academy’s Online Learning Portal at onlinelearning.aapmr.org, which is separate from the virtual AA platform. You should be automatically directed into a session evaluation for you to complete and claim your CME. Within your Online Learning Portal account, all AA sessions will automatically be loaded into your account. This will allow you to complete evaluations and claim CME at any time.
