During the past year, AAP has remained uniquely focused on education, research, and leadership development in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R). The AAP publishes a leading journal, theAmerican Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, hosts a national annual meeting, runs a variety of intensive programs in education and professional development, and supports research networks and programs to enhance the research endeavors of AAP members. The academic development of junior individuals is a priority of the Association. AAP members provide invaluable mentorship and actively participate in AAP programs developed to enhance leadership skills in a PM&R academic setting. The AAP collaborates with other organizations in advocating for people with disabilities and securing research funding for PM&R. All of these efforts were supported by strong and fiscally stable operations.
This annual report describes important AAP programs and activities of its members that have substantial impact on research, education, and leadership development in academic PM&R. These activities require the AAP’s commitment and core financial support, however nearly all have external funding as well.
