Lecture Series

Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital sponsors two lecture series for health care professionals and interested members of the community.  Both series are FREE and open to the public.

Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Grand Rounds

The Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) Grand Rounds are a didactic lecture series in which we aim to increase the attendee’s knowledge regarding practice of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and the conduct of related research. We include lectures on topics from other medical and surgical specialties that are relevant to the practice of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.  We offered a limited number of distinguished lecturer grand rounds, which are presentations by experts that have made significant contributions to our field.

All lectures are held at 12 noon on Fridays (excluding July & August) in Conference Rooms 8A and 8B at the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital Main Campus at 125 Nashua Street in Boston

PM&R Grand Rounds Course Director: Mel B. Glenn, MD. The Harvard Medical School is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians. The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

Bridges to the Community

This series of free seminars is designed for health care professionals, individuals with disabilities and their families, as well as the general public through the Patient Family Resource Center. After an injury or illness, an individual may be left with an impairment or disability. Returning to the community - home, school, or work - may create overwhelming challenges for the individual and his or her family. These challenges can often be met and overcome when everyone is better prepared with knowledge of available resources, assistive technology, and disability rights. Learning and perfecting advocacy skills are a major part of the recovery and healing process.
