Department and Faculty
The Mayo Clinic Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) focuses on fostering functional recovery for inpatients and outpatients through an integrated, multidisciplinary team of rehabilitation professionals. Founded in 1935, the department is one of the largest in the nation, including 35 physiatrists (physicians specializing in rehabilitation medicine), 167 physical therapists, 81 occupational therapists and five recreational therapists. Inpatient services are offered at Saint Marys and Methodist Hospitals in Rochester .
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty members are committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their field.
