AAPM&R National Grand Rounds Series




AAPM&R's free webinar series, National Grand Rounds, connects physiatrists of all specializations, from across the country, for stimulating discourse on topics that represent the intellectual, practical and/or spiritual aspects of the specialty. Under the direction of the Medical Education Committee, this monthly forum will include the presentation of a topic of broad or in-depth focus that serves to bring together physiatrists via a virtual platform.

Examples of topics include telehealth and the evolution of patient care during the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of mentorship, how much physiatrists have to offer to cancer patients and survivors and much more.
