What Does a Typical Workday Look Like?

PM&R is a very diverse field, with no real "typical." 

 
Shadowing Opportunities

Shadowing opportunities are available by contacting Tomiko Bondy
 
Research Opportunities

If you are interested in conducting research relevant to PM&R, contact Dr. Jacques Courseault for opportunities.

Additionally, students may want to pursue research opportunities through the DeBakey Scholars Program. This program offers medical students the opportunity to pursue and complete a longitudinal, structured, closely supervised research experience culminating in a capstone presentation prior to graduation. For more information, contact Dr. Kenneth Mitchell.

 
Specialty Interest Group

PMRIG is a great way to get involved with PM&R. 

Recommended T3 & T4 Coursework

There are several PM&R rotations available to T4s. Additional experiences in Orthopaedics, IM, Peds, or other areas of interest are recommended.
