The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Oakwood 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 Beaumont Oakwood Hospitals, primarily in Dearborn and Taylor, the principal teaching facilities of the Department for the PM&R Oakwood.
