Physiatry is more than an organ, more than a limb, and more than a condition.
This is not a public awareness campaign. The American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R) is funding this initiative in an effort to unite the specialty. The diverse ways in which PM&R is practiced is a strength—but also a potential challenge for the future viability of the specialty. Physiatrists must be unified in voice, in numbers, and in passion so that the patient populations we serve are continuously and positively impacted by our care.
Physiatry is More Than is about sharing the many perspectives of this specialty, and reinforcing the commonality all physiatrists share—a passion for our patients to live functional, fulfilling lives. Whether you’re focused on brain injury, pediatric rehabilitation, neuromuscular medicine, or one of the many other subgroups of physiatry, our diverse clinical roles strengthen our specialty and our impact.
Get involved and tell your story, because united, our impact is magnified.
