MED1 4150/H - Rehabilitation Medicine

Cr Hrs: 3.5, 7
Session Length: 2 and 4 weeks

This is a face to face clinical rotation receiving 3.5 or 7 credit hours. The student should function with increased autonomy in patient care and must demonstrate competency in several of the Entrustable Professional Activities required for graduation. This elective is designed to provide the student with a knowledge of the evaluation and treatment services provided by the Division of Rehabilitation Medicine and their role in total management of both inpatients and outpatients. Students will work directly under the supervision of physicians of the Division of Rehabilitation Medicine and will learn to perform functional evaluations and design rehabilitation treatment programs for patients referred to the Division. Students will also learn the indications and uses for Physical and Occupational Therapy in a large variety of conditions. The student will spend time at Regional One Health, Campbell Clinic, VA Hospital, HealthSouth, and Methodist University Hospital. Each of these rehabilitation programs has a somewhat different emphasis due to the nature of the patient referral load. The student will also be provided an opportunity to participate in the ongoing research programs of the Division of Rehabilitation Medicine. This elective will be of great value to students who are considering a career in those specialties which utilize Rehabilitation Medicine services extensively. These include the specialties of orthopaedic surgery, neurosurgery, neurology, rheumatology, and family practice.
