Message from the Congress President

Dear Colleagues,

The 18th World Congress of the International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (ISPRM) will be a major event in Sydney, running from the 1st – 6th June 2024. It will be held in conjunction with the 7th Annual Meeting of the Rehabilitation Medicine Society of Australia and New Zealand (RMSANZ).

Video: Watch Professor John Olver, AM and Professor Steven Faux introduce ISPRM 2024 and what the Congress offers.

The Congress will be a forum for the presentation of international research, discovery and innovation in rehabilitation medicine. Whilst the major subgroups of clinical endeavour in the field of rehabilitation medicine will be covered; the conference will have a focus on the three “T’s” (trauma, technology and timing).

  • Trauma will include motor vehicle accidents, domestic violence and the results of war and natural disasters
  • Technology will range from personal devices such as phones to robotics
  • Timing will explore topics such as rehabilitation, in-reach services and when rehabilitation should end


The scientific program will include pre-congress practical workshops, plenary sessions and themed sessions with invited speakers and selected free paper presentations. Currently, it is planned for the Congress to be face-to-face with video conferencing from some of the invited speakers.

We encourage your organisation to review partnership with the congress and start the
conversation now on how we can partner to raise the impact and create a lasting legacy for ISPRM 2024 Sydney.

Thank you for your support and looking forward to welcoming you to Sydney in June 2024.
