Members & Publications


December 3, 2018

Registration is now open for the Navigating Early-Career Decisions for Success in Physiatry Practice courses being held in Chicago on March 23 and Philadelphia (date coming soon). 

Intended for physiatrists completing their training (PGY-3, PGY-4 and fellows) and physiatrists within the first 3 years post-training, this early-career course provides a roadmap to navigating the early years of establishing a successful physiatry career. The course will focus on building leadership skills in the workplace and within professional organizations, getting started with licensure and MOC, practice improvement, and non-clinical career opportunities. The course will explore various practice settings and a panel will share relative advantages and disadvantages of each. Finally, the course will review various physician performance metrics and compensation strategies, as well as outline the many AAPM&R resources that assist the early-career physiatrist.

“I thought the early-career course was excellent. I really enjoyed the day and I learned a lot that I will be applying in the near future.” – Past Attendee

“Anyone considering attending the course should absolutely attend. The networking with other early-career physiatrists, as well as with those running the course, is excellent. And all of the various things I learned throughout the day really reaches far beyond what I expected. I would even consider attending the course again.” – Past Attendee

“I thought the course was incredibly monumental to help advance my career.” – Past Attendee

“I definitely think this is a great course for the senior resident physicians and early career physicians who want a refresher in how to navigate their career or just helping senior residents understand how to plan their career in the next few years.” – Past Attendee

Legislation Introduced to Alleviate Impact of Conversion Factor Cut for 2021

Nov 09, 2020

Last month, two bills were introduced in the House proposing solutions to the estimated 10.6% Physician Fee Schedule conversion factor cut expected to go into effect January 1, 2021.  The bills offer some relief to the cut, but do not reflect a comprehensive or long-term solution.  AAPM&R has therefore chosen to remain neutral regarding these bills. 

Your Academy continues to advocate for a permanent solution to the conversion factor cut while maintaining the important payment increases to office and outpatient evaluation and management services.
