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. They have as a central basis the idea 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. Psycho-social-spiritual aspects of rehabilitation complete the whole-person focus, thus providing an opportunity for faculty members and students to observe and experience patient care, while meeting the goals and objectives of the School of Medicine.
