Developing and nurturing research in clinical departments has never been more difficult. Rehabilitation lacks a large research base and suffers from the lack of collective wisdom from senior departmental leaders who have developed research programs. This conference is specifically designed as an interactive forum to assist department chairs and other leaders in rehabilitation in building research programs. The conference will focus on negotiating the "academic jungle," i.e., on the practical mechanics and administrative steps necessary for success.
Department Chairs in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Allied Health Disciplines, Division Heads, and Medical Directors
During each strategic planning session a department presents its history, resources and goals. Panel and audience help them develop a strategic plan. Departments will be selected on a voluntary basis. Perspectives from other departments and wider application of the discussion will be encouraged.
There is no fee for attending the conference.
