In recent years the AOCPMR has been growing rapidly as an organization and our resources have become more abundant than ever before. Our ideas and experiences are shaping the Student Council each month, much like this very dynamic medical specialty. The breadth of our work within the AOCPMR is broad and significant. As this specialty is keen on function, we are focused on delivering all of the tools students may want and need to succeed as students, residents, and future physiatrists. As a whole, we listen to our members and seek to provide the very best experiences, resources, and information to medical students interesting in pursuing and making an impact in the field of PM&R.
The AOCPMR Student Council is comprised of more than 35 medical school chapters throughout the country, and we are expanding our numbers every year, as the field grows and more and more students become interested in PM&R. There is one national student council executive committee, which oversees the chapters and drives development of new student programs and chapter resources. Members of the student council executive committee report to the AOCPMR Executive Board, providing student input into new College initiatives and soliciting resources and funding for chapter activities and student members. We are always looking for motivated and enthusiastic medical students to help strengthen and expand active chapters, as well as for students to assist the AOCPMR in establishing new chapters. We’d love to hear from you, and we’d love to hear how we could better serve your chapter!
The AOCPMR Student Council provides a plethora of other student-focused resources and tools for medical students. Joining the AOPCMR will put at your fingertips a vast array of benefits that you can use to get to where you want to be in Physiatry while having fun and making long-lasting relationships along the way.
The advantages of being an AOCPMR student member are many, and I hope that you truly considering investing in your own future and join today. The price is small, relative to the value that our College provides its members! And with the cost of membership going directly back to you, your chapter, and 100% student programming because, for us, it’s about one thing…value for our members. The AOCPMR values you and your membership. Thank you again for your interest in the AOCPMR.
Please do not hesitate to contact me or anyone on the student council! We hope to hear from you and/or your chapter, and we hope to see you soon in Florida! Best of luck to you in all your endeavors, in medical school and beyond! Follow the “Join Now” link above to sign up today!
