September 17- 23 is National Rehabilitation Awareness Week and we invite you to look back at some of the great press our rehab faculty and staff have received recently, including a lead profile story in the Michigan Medicine Headlines.
The Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at Michigan Medicine received the exciting news today that we have been ranked by US News and World Reports as one of the nation’s best departments of PM&R!
At the department-wide meeting on April 24th we awarded the Tom Lucas TRAIL Blazer Awards: one to recognize a faculty member, one to recognize a non-clinical staff member, and the other to recognize a clinical staff member.
The Michigan Medicine Stroke Rehabilitation Program recently underwent Joint Commission survey, and the surveyor verified the tremendous work that our inpatient rehabilitation team has done to create a high-quality program in evidence-based stroke rehabilitation. Our program has now been officially certified with no citations!
