Adapt To The Demands Of The Future

The Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation is actively involved in many research endeavors to maximize health and physical function for people with disabilities. We are exploring traditional as well as complementary and alternative treatment methodologies. The Department is home to the Program on Integrative Medicine, which conducts research in complementary and alternative medicine, and which is the administrative home of the T-32 Research Fellowship in Complementary and Alternative Medicine and a recent R01 grant.
