Hello ACRM Community,

We are proud to introduce the new ACRM initiative, the ACRM Training Institute (ATI). The goal of this new initiative is to provide optimal career development opportunities to advance and promote rehabilitation medicine clinicians and researchers. This is not only a conference but a concept with multiple channels and opportunities for continuing education.

The vision for ATI is to develop and advance individuals to become passionate, interdisciplinary, global leaders across all areas of rehabilitation medicine. To achieve this vision, the mission for the ATI initiative is to provide experiences that build interdisciplinary rehabilitation research and clinical capacity; develop leaders in the field; have a national and international impact; tailor experiences to individuals that allow for ongoing continuous development; and optimize knowledge translation.

Be on the lookout for communication about these upcoming ATI events and asynchronous learning opportunities.

Registration is open with Early Bird rates as low as $49 per course.

  • Spring ATI meeting (Chicago) — Some tremendous instructional and hands-on learning opportunities will be available Spring 2019, communications coming soon
  • Pre-conference annual courses Fall 2019 (Chicago) — call for proposals is open
  • Video library of educational content — 24/7 access to conference symposia, webinars and more to come as this develops
  • Leadership Training — development of an interdisciplinary training program is underway, more to come

We look forward to your input and insight on how the ATI can be optimally developed to maximize the individual and global impact on rehabilitation medicine clinicians and researchers. Please watch for future communications on the ATI.
