Hello everyone - welcome to a new school year and congratulations on being one step closer to becoming a physician. I am glad you are interested in the specialty of PM&R and hope that you will join our club in exploring this growing and exciting field of medicine. Dr. Wieting (our faculty adviser) is our wonderful resource for learning about physiatry and PM&R and will be giving an introductory talk on PM&R in September at our clubs first meeting. Once we finalize a date you will be able to find the location and time posted on our facebook page ( I hope you will come learn about PM&R and get involved in our club!

Hope to see you there!
