Newswise — Rochester, Minn. (Nov. 4 2022)- The American Association of Neuromuscular & Electrodiagnostic Medicine (AANEM) invites medical students, physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) residents, and early-career physiatrists to join experienced physicians at an interactive webinar to explore career options for physiatrists with a sub-specialty focus on neuromuscular (NM) and/or electrodiagnostic (EDX) medicine.

“What a PM&R Physician Needs to Know About Considering a Career in NM or EDX Medicine,” will be held live on November 14, 2022, at 8:30 p.m. (EST). A recording will also be made public after the event. Attendees will learn about different pathways available so they can excel in NM and/or EDX medicine practice, the new AANEM Fellowship Match Portal, and how to leverage a foundation in physiatry with colleagues in neurology.

Presentations will be given by a panel of experts, including Erik Ensrud, MD, University of Missouri-Columbia; Ileana Howard, MD, University of Washington; and more. Presentations will be followed by a live Q&A. Colin Franz, MD, PhD, a physician-scientist at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab, will moderate the webinar. “This session brings together a diverse group of PM&R specialists from across the country to share their insights on careers in electrodiagnostic and neuromuscular medicine,” he said. “When I was considering a neuromuscular fellowship, it was hard to find good advice from a PM&R perspective. It turns out there are multiple pathways to achieve a career with a strong focus on electrodiagnostic and/or neuromuscular medicine.”
