Rehabilitation Sciences Administration (Graduate Certificate)

An admissions moratorium is currently in effect for this program.

The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation encourages students to acquire knowledge of the patient as a person, not merely of his/her disease. The student is taught to assess the neuromuscu­lar and musculoskeletal systems and to manage the disorders of these systems. In addition, a concept of rehabilitation is presented which considers not only the disease or injury that leads to chronic disability, but emphasizes the coordination of effective therapies and forces which will ameliorate the social, psychological and vocational problems created by the impairment. Teaching is conducted through lectures, demonstrations, staff conferences and seminars, with the major emphasis upon office practice instruction. Clinical instruction is provided at the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan, the principal teaching facility of the Department for the PM&R DMC program and at the following institutions: DMC Children's Hospital, Detroit Receiv­ing Hospital, Harper Hospital, Karmanos Cancer Hospital, and Veter­ans' Administration Hospital.
