Long-Term Training Projects
Grants in Rehabilitation Medicine support medical residency programs in physiatristy. The purpose of these grants is to increase the number of physicians skilled in rehabilitation medicine, who are to provide services to customers of the public rehabilitation programs. Physiatrists provide rehabilitation medical care to persons whose physical functional capacity is limited by the consequences of injury, disease, or congenital disorder. Physiatrists team with other physicians and rehabilitation professionals such as nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, psychologists, prosthetists, and orthotists to provide interdisciplinary care that increases functional abilities of persons with disability. Some physiatrists serve as faculty in rehabilitation medicine and conduct research to improve rehabilitation processes and outcomes.
