Your In-Person Assembly Experience

Annual Assembly

Nothing can replace the in-person event experience—the excitement of getting ready for a show, traveling to a destination city, attending educational sessions tailored to your needs—but the key aspect is seeing your peers face-to-face, coupled with great networking opportunities. Now as COVID restrictions ease, we are once again able to host an in-person Annual Assembly.


We can’t wait for you to join us in Baltimore, October 20-23, where we’ll be Leading the Way. Participate in the best-of-the-best PM&R education, enjoy valuable networking experiences with your peers and discover top-notch physiatric research. You won’t want to miss all the excitement and activities in store as meet again in-person in Baltimore!

Your in-person experience includes:

  • All in-person and virtual sessions—recorded and available to all registered attendees following the Assembly for one year, with the opportunity to earn 156.75 CME.
