Welcome to the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR dept), one of the many departments within the Christian Medical College, Vellore. These web pages give information about the services within the PMR dept for people with disabilities: for those who may want to come for treatment and any others who want to know more about what we do.
Generally there is one page on each of the areas of therapy, inpatient rehabilitation services and medical care available in the department. There are also pages on the undergraduate and postgraduate courses, and other professional activities within the department. The pages describe how the therapists and doctors can help people with disabilities and a little about how patients can get these services. Each area within PMR is colour coded, we hope this will make it easier to understand and follow; for example Rehabilitation Institute is pink so the Rehab Institute page headings and links to the rehab institute are all pink. Some of these pages are large and will take a minute or two to download, so please be patient, in the future we hope to have them available as several smaller pages per therapy.
We extended the Rehab Institute in 2005 to increase the number of bed to 82 in total. The extra beds also bring in more money to treat poorer patients. However, we still do not have enough beds. So we are planning to add a third floor to the building including a children's rehabilitation area. If you would like to give to the cost of the Rehab Institute expansion or to enable poor patients to get care,
