Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation

The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation was established to develop clinical services in rehabilitation medicine and to offer resources for teaching and research in the field of rehabilitation. These clinical and academic activities cover a wide spectrum of clinical medicine, but they have as a central basis the notion that rehabilitation is a complex process involving not only multiple disciplines; but also consideration of the patient in the broader context of the family and community. The psycho-social-spiritual aspects of rehabilitation complete the whole-person focus, thus providing an opportunity for faculty and students to observe and experience patient care while meeting the goals and objectives of the School of Medicine.
