Jose Jimenez completed his medical studies in the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Madrid in 1950. He then trained in PM&R in New York from September 1956 to January 1960 under the mentorship of Drs. A. Abramson and J. Rogoff.
Prof. Jimenez main interests included clinical PM&R, EMG, teaching, and organizational development.
In 1988, he was the Secretary of the 12th Congress of the IFPM&R held in Toronto and was elected Secretary of the Federation.
At the time of the 13th Congress of the IFPM&R in Dresden, IRMA and the IFPM&R had another scheduled meeting during which the merger of the two Organizations was suggested, in view of the similarities of objectives and mission.
The suggestion was accepted and an International Task Force was created to carry out this project. As a member of the International Task Force he wrote with all detail the seven-year-work of the Task Force. In 1999, in Washington DC, the merger was completed and ISPRM was born.
