AAPM&R Membership After Residency

Members & Publications

Question Mark

Did You Know—Are you seeing "Fellow Member" on your membership invoice? That means you are now board-certified, which places you into our Fellow Member category of AAPM&R—it does not relate to being in fellowship training. Fellow members enjoy the same membership benefits as those in training and are now eligible to hold leadership positions, as well as add "FAAPMR" to their credentials.

Let's Advance Together
