Be an Editor of AJPM&R's Resident-Fellow Section

The AAP's Resident/Fellow Council partnered with the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation to launch a Resident-Fellow Section in October 2019! This section provides an opportunity for physiatry trainees to publish original content focused on material relevant to physiatry education and training, in a peer-reviewed journal.

We are now accepting applications for Residents and Fellows with significant prior research experience to join the Board as Section Editors. These roles would include reviewing and critiquing submissions to the Resident-Fellow Corner under the supervision of an Associate Editor, Dinesh Kumbhare, MD, PhD. As an Editor of the Resident-Fellow Section, you will be required to review and provide constructive comments for 1-3 articles a month and see these articles through to publication. We anticipate the time commitment to be approximately 10-20 hours per month. Selected Editors will have the option to remain on the Editorial Staff until the completion of their residency/fellowship training (2-3 years).

Eligibility Requirements:

  • As of July 1, 2020, you must be a PGY-3 resident at a ACGME accredited PM&R residency program
  • Have an active AAP membership
