Clinical Research Curriculum

Fundamentals of Clinical Investigation

Rehab in Review:

Summaries of recent articles of interest in journals related to rehabilitation. Summaries are published in Rehab in Review, a surveillance journal for rehabilitation professionals.

Summaries should be between 200 and 250 words. Summaries should begin with a one or two sentence statement indicating why the study was done. This can be derived from the introduction to the article itself. This should be followed by a short paragraph indicating what was done, and then a paragraph indicating what was found. The summary should end with a one to two sentence summary of the findings. This allows the reader to either review what was just read, or refresh his/her memory after reading the summary. Please see a previous edition of Rehab in Review as a guideline.

Achieving the length restriction can be difficult. As a suggestion, the methodology section is the easiest area to truncate, leaving the reader with a general idea of what was done. The finer details of the study can be accessed from the full article. Please make all of the summaries factual, with no injection of personal opinion.

Please include:

  • Submitted by: Your name, title, and residency program
  • Journal name with volume number, issue, and page numbers
  • Article in pdf format
