Family. A term not used to describe many organizations but one used to describe the American Osteopathic College of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AOCPMR)

Our college focuses on promoting a family atmosphere where the ideas and experiences of both our allopathic and osteopathic members are highly valued. These passions continually shape our college allowing us to provide not only the best care to our patients but to become leaders within the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Echoing the mission of our field to focus on function we continually strive to provide the tools and experiences that will allow all of our members to succeed. It is with these tools and the support of our members that AOCPMR continues to challenge the status quo and shape the future of physical medicine and rehabilitation. As you begin your journey as a resident physician we would love to hear from you and help you in the pursuit of your passions.

The AOCPMR resident council is comprised of more than 90 PM&R residency programs throughout the country with connections to over 25 osteopathic medical schools providing our resident members a plethora of resources.

It is our intent to promote each of our member’s unique passions while developing lasting professional relationships to help our members find success in all of their endeavors. This begins in our Mid-Year Meeting and Scientific Seminar where our members take part in free hands-on workshops, poster presentations, career and industry fairs, lectures, and many social events.During our meetings our sense of family truly shines as the tremendous educational opportunities we offer are tied closely with the ability to network with fellow students, residents, fellows, and attendings as colleagues but more importantly as friends. Through these bonds our members continue to propel our field forward while holding true to our unwavering ethos of promoting function and a “patient-first” approach to medicine.

We would love to have you be part of our college.

Please take a moment and join us as we continue to shape the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. We look forward to hearing your ideas and seeing you at an event soon!
