Improving Health, Function, and Well-Being.

Welcome

Welcome to the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our mission is to optimize the health and function of individuals with disabilities through a patient-centered continuum of care with the goal of improving quality of life. Our rehabilitation medicine physicians, called physiatrists, manage the care of patients through an interdisciplinary rehabilitation team of colleagues within UNC Health Care system. Our department’s research faculty and neuropsychologists further develop our holistic approach, ensuring well-being, maximum functional abilities, and cognitive and psychological health for patients with physical impairment and cognitive dysfunction.  Physiatry is becoming more critical as the population ages and desires ideal states of wellness, quality of life, and function over a lifetime.
