Message from the Chair
Welcome to the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
Thank you for your interest in the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation at the University of Minnesota.
The Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) became an autonomous department at the University of Minnesota in 1952. A federal PM&R Research and Training Center was established at the University of Minnesota in 1961 and during the 1970’s and early 1980’s the department was noted as a premier PM&R national training center. The department continues in its mission of providing high quality patient care, education and research in medical rehabilitation.
I invite you to explore this website for information about our department and dedicated faculty and staff. We hope you will find this site helpful and informative.
