After consultation with the Clerkship Director and Clerkship Coordinator, the student will be assigned to the area of practice to which he/she needs the most exposure before entering a residency program. Options include: time in a rehabilitation hospital working with patients who have spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, stroke, etc., and/or time in outpatient clinics gaining exposure to patients with chronic and acute musculoskeletal pain, sports medicine, interventional spine procedures and electrodiagnostics. On the inpatient service, students will be exposed to all aspects of rehabilitation, including physical, occupational, speech, and psychological therapies and assistive devices. On the outpatient side, students will work one-on-one with an attending and observe outpatient diagnostics and treatment.
