The Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation is offering a funded summer clinical experience during the months of June, July and August (minimum 6, maximum 8 weeks). This experience is typically reserved for a second year medical student, however first year medical students may also be considered.
The student will gain experience in the departmental rehabilitation programs, including: acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury, amputee, stroke and general musculoskeletal rehabilitation. Under the supervision of each of the seven Attending Physiatrists, the student will attend ambulatory clinics in the various specialty areas of rehabilitation, physical medicine and electromyography. The student will also have an opportunity to participate in inpatient rounds with the interdisciplinary team, and follow an inpatient throughout their rehabilitation stay. In addition to learning about the practice of PM&R, there will be the opportunity to improve neuromusculoskeletal clinical skills.
