Annual Assembly



Meeting Your CME Requirements


The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R) is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians. 

CME Credit Designation

AAPM&R designates Annual Assembly live educational sessions for a maximum of 27.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. 

AAPM&R designates credit separately for each preconference course held prior to the Annual Assembly. Physicians may claim up to 7.25 to 17.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for participation in one of the preconference courses.

Faculty CME for Presenters

The Academy will award AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for participation as a faculty member at the 2018 Annual Assembly. Faculty may be awarded 2 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ for each hour of original presentation at an educational session. Faculty may not claim simultaneous credit as physician learners for their presentations; however, they may claim participant credit for other sessions they attend as learners. Credit may only be claimed once for repeated presentations. Faculty CME can be claimed via a postconference evaluation. CME letters and evaluations will be distributed post Annual Assembly.


AAPM&R requires all individuals who are in a position to control the content of an educational activity to disclose all relevant financial relationships with any commercial interest, which is any entity producing, marketing, re-selling, or distributing health care goods or services consumed by, or used on, patients. Disclosures are made in written form prior to the start of the educational activity and any potential conflicts of interest that exist are resolved prior to the start of the activity through AAPM&R’s Conflict of Interest Disclosure and Resolution Policy Process. All disclosures are made available and communicated to the learners prior to the activity. Speaker disclosures are available in the speaker profiles section within the mobile app. Planner disclosures are available in the Addendum.
