Professional Education and Research
Through a robust program of professional education events and research investigations, St. Charles is helping to advance clinical knowledge in the field of rehabilitation.
St. Charles Hospital has examined some of the newest clinical technologies, including deep-brain stimulation, or Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS), and the Indego® Exoskeleton, a wearable robotic frame which allows adults with a spinal cord injury or stroke to stand and walk while seeking to improve their stride. We’ve opened our research studies on such technologies to patients in our acute rehabilitation programs to deliver the kind of opportunities that patients have come to expect from the nation’s top acute rehabilitation hospitals.
St. Charles is likewise providing continuing education to clinical professionals who work in the New York area. St. Charles hosts a Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Residency Program on behalf of Stony Brook University Medical School and offer professional education events throughout the year. Our events help supply continuing education credits to rehabilitation professionals, therapists, athletic trainers and numerous other healthcare professionals across Long Island.
