AAPM&R's Future Leaders Hill Day 


Welcome to AAPM&R’s Future Leaders Hill Day web page! We appreciate your office’s attention to issues important to physiatry and rehabilitation patients.

AAPM&R is the national medical specialty organization representing more than 9,000 physicians who are specialists in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R). PM&R physicians, also known as physiatrists, are medical experts in treating a wide variety of medical conditions affecting the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments, muscles, and tendons. PM&R physicians evaluate and treat injuries, illnesses, and disability, and are experts in designing comprehensive, patient-centered treatment plans. Physiatrists utilize cutting‐edge as well as time‐tested treatments to maximize function and quality of life.

This year’s top priorities for our DC fly-in on September 20, 2022 include:

  1. Restoring physician judgement to inpatient rehabilitation care by supporting the Access to Inpatient Rehabilitation Therapy Act of 2022 (H.R. 8746) also known as the "Three Hour Rule"
  2. Opposing further physician reimbursement cuts and encouraging a long-term solution to budget neutrality.
