password reset link. For further assistance logging in or if you did not receive instructions to access
the platform prior to the beginning of the conference, please contact Academy staff at info@aapmr.org.

Accessing the Virtual Platform

The virtual platform is designed to work on web-based applications (Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer. Safari is not recommended.) You can access the platform from your laptop, table or mobile phone.

To make sure your system is ready to go for the event, be sure to download the most current versions of your web-based applications. Click here to see how your computer is currently operating.

Internet Speed

For the best experience, a minimum internet speed of 25mbps is recommended - use this handy speed checker to test your connection!

It is essential that you disconnect from any VPN networks while participating. If you are connected to a VPN while using the platform, important functions like theater and video displays will not work properly.


You will still be able to access the platform if your company has a corporate firewall in place. In most cases, firewalls will not pose a problem. To help you identify any potential issues, click here.
