Mission, Vision and Core Values

The Johns Hopkins Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) has been helping patients recover function since 1992. Our dedicated team of doctors, psychologists, therapists, and nurses are leaders in their fields and work with each patient to provide a comprehensive rehabilitation plan designed with the highest quality treatment. 

In addition to treating patients, the Johns Hopkins Department of PM&R is continually discovering better ways to diagnose and rehabilitate patients through an active research program, and is committed to the education and training of new professionals in the field.


The mission of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is to improve the quality of life for individuals disabled by injury or disease through generation of essential new knowledge, training leaders in patient care and research, shaping public policy, and providing the finest medical care.


By integrating our skills, knowledge and enthusiasm, we are a premier center for academic physical medicine and rehabilitation. Our world-class faculty and staff utilize state-of-the-art facilities to provide the finest in research, teaching, and patient care.

Core Values

Our word is our bond; we honor our commitments to patients, colleagues, and community.

We are committed to both technical excellence (proficiency in our work) and service excellence (providing an outstanding experience for each patient we serve).

The team approach is essential to our mission. We collaborate with one another, with other departments and programs, and with our patients and their families – who are full members of the rehabilitation team.

Evidence-based medicine is a hallmark of our approach. We are uniquely positioned to apply the latest discoveries of basic scientists in our daily care of patients.

Every member of our team, from physicians to technical staff to patients and their families, deserves respect as a full contributor to our shared mission. We value the life, the work, the beliefs and the ideas of every individual.

We value and promote diversity with respect to gender, race, religion, ethnicity, and physical ability/disability.
