The mission of theDepartment of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is to provide excellent clinical care, education, and research in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, leading to optimum quality of life for individuals with physical disabilities. Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation focuses on restoration of the body and mind after trauma or disease has occurred. In some cases the restoration is ongoing and the goal is to teach the patient how to live and cope with the effects of pain, or lack of function, and lead a full and productive life to the greatest extent possible. Clinically, restoration and rehabilitation can be accomplished in different ways. Our philosophy is to assess a patient's bio/psycho/social needs and determine which diagnostic and treatment methods will provide the patient with the highest level of functional outcome. The approach is often inter-disciplinary. Academically, we teach medical students basic treatment and assessment techniques and methods used in rehabilitation, along with advanced knowledge of anatomy. We train residents in the practice of physiatry and the diagnostic art of electromyography (EMG). We also offer a fellowship program to physicians desiring a refined knowledge of EMG and pain management.
