Your In-Person Experience in Nashville

Annual Assembly

Physiatry’s Event of the Year!

Nothing can replace the in-person event experience—the excitement of getting ready for a show, traveling to a destination city, meeting peers face-to-face, attending educational sessions tailored to your needs and all the great networking!

We can’t wait for you to join us in Nashville, November 11-14 when we’ll be Reimagining Our Future Through Technology and Science.

COVID-19 Health & Safety Policies

The safety and comfort of our attendees, staff and local Nashville community remain our priority. As we approach the Annual Assembly, please know that your Academy is actively seeking guidance from local health officials and national mandates to implement appropriate COVID-19 safety measures in Nashville. This information is based on the best information available at this time and may change prior to the in-person even in Nashville.

Plenary Speakers

No other PM&R conference brings together high-profile thought leaders who have made significant and enduring contributions in both their respective fields and throughout the world. During four exciting plenaries, our speakers will share their insights on how they’ve overcome adversity to leave a lasting impact.
