AAP Academic Partners


As a leader in PM&R, you understand the value of connecting your department to cutting-edge resources and research, leading mentors and collaborators, high-quality professional development, and national recognition and visibility. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach for the unique needs and demands you face. That’s why the AAP offers exclusive opportunities for your department to customize your membership, meet your needs and provide the greatest benefits to your institution overall.

The AAP Academic Partner membership allows PM&R departments to receive AAP member benefits and visibility at a greatly reduced cost. Through this program, your Program Coordinator receives all the benefits of individual AAP membership, including connection to our community, member subscription to AAP publications and much more. In addition, your Program Coordinator PLUS one faculty member and one resident receive registration to the AAP's Annual Meeting. There are even more benefits that come with that!

Become an AAP Academic Partner and contribute to the advancement of education and research in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation while receiving value to the department that exceeds your donation. Questions? Contact the AAP's membership team at (410) 654-1000 or email.

Thank you to our institutional members who are helping to strengthen the specialty!
