Rehabilitation Medicine aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to those with physical impairments or disabilities. Training in Rehabilitation Medicine requires expertise in a broad range of clinical skills, not only medical, but also psychological, technical and social. A sound knowledge and experience of the wide variety of disorders encountered is necessary together with skills to co-ordinate a range of medical and paramedical expertise, social agencies and personal support services. Specialists in Rehabilitation Medicine work closely with allied specialties such as Rheumatology, Neurology, Geriatric medicine and Spinal injury. (RCPI – November 2013)
