Welcome to Rehabilitation
The Pediatric Rehabilitation program provides comprehensive multidisciplinary rehabilitation care for children ages birth through 21 years. Our goal is to maximize the abilities of each child while minimizing the effects of their impairments. This is accomplished through effective rehabilitation of the highest quality provided in a family-centered environment. Depending upon the nature of the impairment and the needs of the child, treatment takes place in diverse settings and uses the various skills of rehabilitation professionals to promote the highest possible level of function. The pediatric rehabilitation team is committed to helping each individual reach full functional independence in self-care, mobility, communication, cognition, and socialization.
Our program offers an elective rotation for 4th-year medical students.
Our faculty participate in research studies to improve treatments for young patients seeking functional recovery from chronic illness and injury.
Our program cares for patients through specialty programs at UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, including a Spina Bifida Program, Rehabilitation Clinic, and Pediatric Physical Medical and Rehabilitation Clinic.
