Ask Dr. Chin: Why Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R)?

doctor helping male patient walk with walker (source: medicine appealed to my engineering background in its use of physics and mathematics to solve clinical problems. I like having the tools to solve problems in different ways. Rehabilitation appealed to my interest in helping people be more independent for an improved quality of life. Seeing a patient return home after a prolonged illness or severe trauma is very rewarding and fulfilling to me.

I also enjoy working with people to get them to be more independent, particularly those who cannot take care of themselves to their fullest potential. PM&R provides me with the patient population that I want to help, the ability to focus more on problem solving than on diagnosing, and the tools to apply my engineering and osteopathic thinking with the most impact.
