Program Coordinators

Welcome!

There are now 94 Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Program Coordinators across the country, and we're proud that 78 of them are active members of the AAP. That's why we've created a council and community to support our unique needs.

Program Coordinators wear many hats, and we need year-round collaboration, camaraderie and idea sharing to help our programs and residents grow. We do that through the AAP Program Coordinators listserv, AAP Annual Meeting, and more.

Find your strong and supportive community by becoming an AAP member and getting involved today!

The Program Coordinators Council puts together workshops and sessions designed to help you develop the right skills, resources and mindset to succeed. Here's a look at our experience at the AAP's joint 2020 meeting with ISPRM. Save the date for Physiatry '21, the AAP's 2021 Annual Meeting, February 9-13, 2021 in Anaheim, California!
