Jefferson physiatrists have been leaders in rehabilitation medicine for more than 30 years. A team of occupational, physical and speech therapists, neuropsychologists, nurse specialists, social workers and vocational counselors support the full-time staff of board-certified specialists. In affiliation with Magee Rehabilitation Hospital, the department makes possible Jefferson's Regional Spinal Cord Injury Center.

A variety of additional programs and centers based in the department serve a large population of patients representing virtually all rehabilitation needs. The department has longstanding expertise in caring for patients with stroke and other vascular disease and in caring for amputees. It has the area's earliest established cardiac rehabilitation program, and it treats many patients who suffer from circulatory problems and neuropathy secondary to diabetes.

    Course Location:
    Bluemle Life Sciences Building
    233 S. 10th Street
    Philadelphia, PA 19107

    This annual conference is designed to modernize the electrodiagnostic knowledge and skills of physiatrists, neurologists, and allied health professional who treat a myriad of neurological and neuromuscular diseases in their practice. The purpose of this course is to describe the necessity of using both the clinical and electrical findings in generating a comprehensive diagnostic report. Participants will improve skills in identifying spontaneous and voluntary waveforms and recruitment patterns, differentiating axonopathies from myelinopathies, identifying anterior horn cell and neuromuscular junction diseases and myopathies, and coding for services provided. A few selective diseases and injuries will be presented to achieve the purpose of the course. The approach taken in this course includes didactic presentation, case studies, and audience participation. Case studies will be presented in each teaching session to reinforce new information and best clinical practices.
