AAP Physiatric Research Consulting Program


The objective of the PM&R Residency Expansion and Development Initiative is inspired by the research consultancy offered by our colleagues in the Research Committee, assists institutions in creating novel PM&R residency programs or improving the effectiveness of their existing program. The AAP Education Committee, with the support of APEC, created PM&R READI. It is our belief that PM&R READI will not only increase the number of PM&R residency training positions but will also improve the quality of training for our specialty


The program consists of :

  • A two-day evaluation and needs assessment by the leaders of AAP's Education Committee
  • Interviewes with CEOs, CMOs, CQO, physiatrists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and therapy directors from four competing medical centers who have partnered with your institution 
  • A follow-up assessment
  • The site visitors meet with key individuals during an on-site visit, and then provide specific recommendations for implementing or improving the PM&R program at the institution


PM&R READI is ready for new partners and adventures. If you are interested in having your residency program evaluated or would like guidance on how to establish a new residency, please contact the AAP office for further details by emailing or calling 410- 654-1000.

A Q&A with Co-Creator of the READI Program, Dr. Vu Nguyen, was featured in the latest AAP Newsletter HERE.
