The AADEP is the premiere society, serving physicians involved in disability management. Our activities will include ongoing teaching of the management of disabled patients and impairment and disability evaluation to physicians, other health care providers, attorneys, regulators, legislators and others involved in the care of the disabled and coordinate research in the area of disability management. Our multi-disciplinary and comprehensive approach will make us unique in this arena.The founders of the Academy were dissatisfied and frustrated by the inadequate state of disability evaluation 17 years ago. They advocated for uniform disability assessment methods and the development of uniform standards for the determination of maximum medical improvement, the rating of impairment, and the determination of the ability to return to work. Their mission was education.
