Physiatry '21
February 9-13, 2021

Submission options include Research Study, Case Report and Scientific Paper Presentation. Abstracts presented at the AAP Annual Meeting will be published as an online supplement at – the official website of The American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation. Accepted abstracts will be presented in two formats, Scientific Paper podium presentation or as part of the Poster Gallery.

SCIENTIFIC PAPER PRESENTATIONS: The intent of these oral presentations is to convey the nature of high quality research practice to the meeting participants. Papers for this session should be experimental in nature, and will be chosen not only for their intrinsic scientific merit, but also for their educational value in illustrating the research process. Abstracts must be submitted as a Scientific Paper Presentation to be eligible for an oral (podium) presentation and for the Best Paper prizes. An additional 1,000 word abstract along with your 300 word submission is required.

POSTER PRESENTATIONS: Each poster will be presented in the poster gallery, an exhibit providing a forum for a one on one, in-depth discussion using narrative and visual material to display and communicate the objectives, methods, results and conclusions of a specific study. Use of visual material such as photographs, charts, and diagrams is very important. The Presenting Author, as the resource person or consultant, should be present at specified times on the days of presentation to engage in discussion with interested individuals. Posters may be a case report or research study.

Thank you, AAP Staff
