Research is a vital component of our mission!

At the VUMC Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, it is the combining of research and patient care that inspires us to be the best.  We’re not just researchers, we’re clinicians and therapists who work directly with patients. Our faculty are leading the way in physiatry with specialists that encompass a broad array of medical conditions.

Faculty members include nationally and internationally recognized physicians and staff, who use evidence-based medicine, technology, and innovation to improve function, clinical outcomes, and quality of life for their patients. The VUMC Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation continues to broaden the scope of its research portfolio as it expands into new and emerging fields of study.
