Program Coordinators


There are less than 90 Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Program Coordinators nationwide. This small select group of individuals is tasked with coordinating academically-based PM&R programs. We know this is a daunting task. That's why we work together and learn from each other through the AAP's Program Coordinators Council and Annual Meeting programming. Join your counterparts throughout the country by becoming a member of AAP and getting involved in our council.

Every year at the AAP's Annual Meeting, the Program Coordinators Council puts together workshops and sessions designed to help you develop the right skills, resources and mindset to succeed. Join us at Physiatry '19 in Puerto Rico to find out why so many PM&R Program Coordinators come to the AAP to learn and network with directors and colleagues from across the country.
