PHiT Ambassador Appointment Process

Members & Publications




PHiT Ambassadors will serve a one-year term in their positions from July 1, 2024 to June 30, 2025. They play a critical role in increasing involvement within the resident community by:

  • Working with their Residency Program Liaisons to share upcoming events and opportunities with your program’s residents, fellows in-training and rotating medical students.
  • Contributing to our Physiatrists-in-Training e-newsletter.
  • Presenting to their program and rotating medical students, giving them an overview of the Academy’s structure, resources and opportunities for residents to lead and volunteer with AAPM&R.
  • Participating onsite at the 2024 Annual Assembly November 7 - 10 in San Diego, CA.
  • Collaborating with their program coordinators to add AAPM&R’s membership application to their residency program's orientation paperwork.
  • Assisting the PHiT Board in identifying new PM&R medical student interest groups.
  • Ensuring their program’s open fellowship positions are represented on PM&R Aspire, our career-exploration platform.

PHiT Ambassadors with the most engagement throughout the year receive additional recognition for their activity including social media.


Please reach out to your current PHiT Ambassador to participate in this opportunity. If your program does not have a PHiT Ambassador, please reach out to your Chief Resident.
