Department Chairs & Chiefs

Welcome!

The AAP's Chair Council is a group of Department Chairs and Division Chiefs of an ACGME-approved PM&R program. All AAP members that meet the qualifications are automatic members of this community. Our mission is to work with the AAP to create the future of academic physiatry through mentorship, leadership and discovery. The council offers opportunities for Chairs and Chiefs to communicate important information, generate ideas, alert the appropriate people to critical issues and provide collegial support. We hope you'll get active in our community!

Every year at the AAP's Annual Meeting, Department Chairs and Division Chiefs come together to learn, share best practices and grow their network and impact. Join us in Puerto Rico at Physiatry '19! Here's a look at some of our exclusive sessions:
