Dr. Katharine Seagly Named Co-Director of Brain Injury Rehabilitation Program

Congratulation to Dr. Katharine Seagly on her appointment as co-director of the brain injury rehabilitation program in the Michigan Medicine Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.  She will co-direct with Dr. Ryan Stork until he leaves, and then serve as the program director until a physician co-director is appointed.

Dr. Katharine Seagly

 Dr. Seagly is a licensed psychologist and a clinical neuropsychologist, as well as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.  She received her PhD from the Virginia Consortium Program in Clinical Psychology.  She completed her clinical internship at the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine at New York University and her APPCN neuropsychology fellowship at the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan.  She trained for three years in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Model Systems prior to accepting a TBI-focused faculty position in the Division of Rehabilitation Psychology and Neuropsychology (RPN) in 2017.  Since joining the University of Michigan, she has started an RPN adult concussion program incorporating both brief assessment and intervention, and is collaborating with a Brain Injury Medicine physician on further development of the inpatient TBI program, incorporating the Learning Health System for improving patient care and research on TBI outcomes.  Her research interests are primarily in the areas of psychosocial, cognitive and quality of life outcomes following TBI, concussion outcomes, performance validity tests, and improving collaborative rehabilitation treatment. 

 

We look forward to the program growing and moving forward as Dr. Seagly assumes her new role.
