The purpose of this book is to briefly summarize and discuss the nature and scope of the medical specialty of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM). The objective of the International Society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ISPRM) in publishing this book is to provide a framework for the specialty that will unify efforts to develop PRM taking into account and respecting cultural and socioeconomic differences among geographic regions of the world.

Many experts and leaders of the field of PRM have been invited to contribute. On behalf of ISPRM, I would like to thank them for their contribution. I sincerely hope that their expertise and experience will help us learn the origins of PRM, understand the current state of the specialty, and define, accept, and address the challenges we face in PRM, in particular, and rehabilitation, in general, as we move forward.

It is reasonable to suggest that PRM will continue to grow, expand, diversify, and become not only stronger and more inclusive but also a more complicated field of study and practice. We expect, with enthusiasm, that this will be the case. It is the intent of ISPRM to update the content of this book frequently as areas such as educational curricula, research topics, and clinical practice change over time. I hope you, PRM professionals, the persons with disabilities, and people with chronic health conditions that we serve will benefit from this effort.

Very sincerely yours,

Prof. Walter R. Frontera, MD, PhD, FRCP
