Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) is a medical specialty that is focused on improving patient’s quality of life through maximizing their functional ability. PM&R physicians take a patient centered approach to helping those who have suffered debilitated injuries of the nervous and musculoskeletal systems and help them to regain as much of their previous lifestyle as possible.  The goal of our interest group is to bring together people who are interested in PM&R so that they can learn more about the specialty.  This includes opportunities to meet residents and physicians in the field and build contacts.  There will also be opportunities to volunteer and help improve the visibility of the profession as well as your resume.  We also will plan to have some social events for networking and building camaraderie.
