The faculty of physical medicine and rehabilitation is participating in several research projects designed to improve fitness and function, prevent sport injuries, reduce pain, and improve medical techniques. Research projects are active at the University of Utah Medical Center, Primary Children’s Hospital, University Orthopaedic Center, and the Veterans Administration Medical Center. Faculty collaborates with various departments locally within the School of Medicine, College of Health, College of Engineering, and Biomedical Informatics, as well as medical centers nationally to design and conduct research activities. Residents have the opportunity to collaborate with faculty to conduct their own research projects and present findings at local and national meetings.
