Taking Pediatric Rehabilitation Across State Lines and Through Cyberspace to Children in Need


Pediatric rehabilitation doctors are specialists at a premium in the US; Dr Amy Houtrow talks with Patient Care about how they reach beyond geographic barriers.

"My colleagues at Seattle Children's, they fly up to Alaska to do clinic and my colleagues in Denver go up to Wyoming and those other mountain states to provide rehabilitation care."

Pediatric rehabilitation physician Amy Houtrow, MD, PhD, MPH, spoke with Patient Care® about efforts in the physiatry community to overcome geographic barriers to care and to spread the services of the fewer than 400 pediatric rehabilitation medicine doctors in the US.

Amy Houtrow, MD, PhD, MPH, is chief of pediatric rehabilitation medicine at the UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh; endowed professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation and pediatrics at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine; and secretary of the Board of Governors of the American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
