Medical Student Program
The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation department at the Medical College of Wisconsin offers many opportunities for medical student education. Given the affiliations with Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, and the Clement J. Zablocki Veterans Medical Center, there exists a fertile environment for patient care and teaching. The PM&R department consists of 31 faculty members, committed to resident and student teaching, patient care, and research. Medical students participate in weekly resident educational didactic sessions, bedside teaching, as well as other educational opportunities that arise.
During the M1 year, students have the opportunity to learn more about the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation through the Medical College of Wisconsin PM&R Student Club. The students organize this club, with Dr. Carley Sauter as the advisor.
During the M2 year, PM&R faculty participates in the Introduction to Clinical Examination course, teaching a component of the musculoskeletal exam. Faculty additionally serves as on-site mentors to the M2 students during the "History and Physical Exam" portion of this course.
