Research capability


Physical medicine and rehabilitation ( PM&R) as a specialty faces exciting opportunities to contribute to the health and well-being of society ? as a specialty that concerns itself not with a specific organ system , but with human performance and function , the field has much to offer in the way of solutions to critical societal issues such as the aging of the population , the saving of individuals with formerly lethal conditions, and the increased societal recognition of the importance of quality of life . moreover , advance in other scientific arenas offer new and exciting tools that that may be applied to problems of human function .


 like all other medical specialties , advances in PM&R are dependent upon research . real challenges are faced by the field as it is a relatively small specialty , new in comparison to other disciplines, lacks a history  of major research involvement , and operates within a highly complex theoretical framework . moreover , because rehabilitation science concerns itself with analytic levels ranging from molecular to social , appropriate models for advanced research training differ from that have been successful in more narrowly defined scientific disciplines .
