Faculty

Meet our core clinical faculty 


The department's attending staff consists of 16 board-certified physiatrists. All ABPMR subspecialties are represented within the PM&R faculty. Many members of this department were previously residents in this program. Some pursued postgraduate opportunities elsewhere and have returned to practice at Beaumont.

A major strength of this program is the stability and diversity of the faculty, thereby providing an extremely stable environment within which the residents thrive.
