Program & Goals
The department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation offers comprehensive care to individuals recovering from a stroke with the goal of maximizing function and quality of life.
Integrated Care Model
Our physiatrists develop and oversee an individualized care plan for each patient which is implemented by our team of rehabilitation professionals. Our services are available to patients who have suffered a stroke during acute hospitalization at UNC Hospitals, at the UNC Health Care Rehabilitation Center or our sub-acute rehabilitation at UNC-Rex.
We continue rehabilitation care, education, research and advocacy in the UNC PM&R Outpatient Clinic and through our community outreach programs.
