The ACRM International Interdisciplinary Special Interest Group (IISIG) is a community of rehabilitation professionals from around the world whose mission is to communicate and collaborate across international boundaries to advance rehabilitation research and evidence-based practice.
It fosters international collaborations among rehabilitation researchers, consumers, and providers through multi-site research; disseminates evidence-based practice recommendations through active participation in the ACRM Annual Conference; and develops educational materials.
The IISIG will serve as a catalyst for ACRM’s global growth and through its membership and activities will bring an international perspective on rehabilitation research, service delivery, and education. It builds on the ACRM commitment to interdisciplinary research that reaches across health conditions and the continuum of rehabilitation care.
POSTDOCTORAL MATCH PROGRAM
The International ISIG has initiated a Postdoctoral Match Program to help match postdoc rehabilitation trainees with international postdoctoral rehabilitation research positions. This program is a free benefit of your ACRM membership. An application survey was first emailed to I-ISIG members on Tuesday, 11 January, 2022 at 3:37 PM ET. Please search your inbox and/or spam folder for that invitation or watch for upcoming email reminders.
To participate, please complete the Postdoctoral Match Program Application survey by 5:00 PM ET on Tuesday, 1 February 2022 to tell us about yourself or the research position you have available. If you are an I-ISIG member and did not receive the program application, please contact Cindy Robinson for assistance.
Once the application period has concluded, we will follow-up via email to connect postdoc trainees with the positions available.
Please contact the I-ISIG Program Coordinator, Donna Langenbahn, PhD, FACRM, Co-Chair of the IISIG Organization & Research Task Force with any questions.
