About the RFC

Welcome to the resident fellow council (RFC) 

Welcome to the Resident Fellow Council (RFC) page!

The Resident Fellow Council (RFC) represents all Resident and Fellow membership of the Association of Academic Physiatrists (AAP).

A nationally elected board governs the RFC with a focus on developing and sustaining a vibrant resident body and advocating on behalf of all trainees. Members of the RFC serve on various national AAP committees and help plan educational and networking sessions for the AAP Annual Meeting, serve on the AAP Board of Trustees and assist with the strategic mission of the AAP to support the needs of trainees, provide mentorship, develop leaders in academic physiatry, and to help advance the specialty.
