Societas Physicalis et Rehabilitationis Fenniae is the Finnish society for specialists and trainees in Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine. It was established in 1956. Nowadays we have 211 members. The society has two annual meetings, one in February and the other in November. In addition, the society organizes educational meetings for trainees and specialists one to two times a year. New members for the government of the society are elected in February. The society collaborates with the five medical schools in Finland and the university hospital departments of PRM to improve education for medical students and trainees in PRM.
