Welcome to the New PM&R Department!

Kevin Vincent, MD, PhD, (center) founding chair of the UF College of Medicine’s new PM&R Department, speaks during a meeting with department faculty and residents.

The BREATHE Center is happy to announce that our friends in the Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation have launched the first new clinical department at UF College of Medicine in 30 years! Congratulations to founding chair Dr. Kevin Vincent and his team for building a free-standing department that will allow them to not only compete for federal grants and other research funding but also develop innovative solutions for patients who have experienced stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, neuromuscular disease, musculoskeletal or sports injury, back pain, congenital disability, or limb amputation. Learn more about the development of this new department in the recent UF Health article, UF College of Medicine adds first new clinical department in 30 years. We look forward to working with them in the near future, including for a BRAIN Building event co-hosted with the BRAIN Center on August 12.
