About the Club
The MSS Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Interest Group (PMRIG) was created with the goal of exposing McGill healthcare students to an exciting and often overlooked medical specialty. PM&R doctors, also called physiatrists, evaluate and treat patients whose functional abilities have been impaired. They hold a holistic view of the patient’s well-being, have in-depth knowledge in both MSK and neurology, and have two major focuses: sports medicine and rehabilitation. By way of relevant educational workshops, career-focused information sessions, and interprofessional collaboration, we hope to pique interest in the unique aspects of this discipline and prepare students for working with and referring to PM&R doctors.
