Musculoskleletal conditions comprise the second most common reason for physician visits and have the greatest negative impact on health-related quality of life in the industrialized world. Therefore, all medical schools should provide education for their students in these disorders. Physiatrists play a unique role in musculoskeletal care and hence, should play a leading role in medical student education. The Association of Academic Physiatrists formed a task force in 2007 to make recommendations as to how physiatrists could contribute to musculoskeletal education for medical students. This report contains those recommendations.
