Special interest groups with the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM) work hard to promote high standards of rehabilitation practice, education, and research among interdisciplinary professionals and colleagues.
At ACRM, we have many different special interest groups you can join, including the Brain Injury Interdisciplinary Special Interest Group (BI-ISIG). This group holds two meetings each year: a membership meeting at the ACRM Spring Meeting and the BI-ISIG Summit at the ACRM Annual Conference. For medical professionals interested in rehabilitation medicine and brain injury, BI-ISIG is the right option. Learn reasons to join BI-ISIG here, and become a member today.
