Dear AJPM&R readers,
The number of people with disabilities has continued to increase, and all healthcare providers, independent of their profession or medical specialty, will be involved in treating patients with permanent impairments. In this issue of the AJPM&R, we include a study on medical student’s attitudes toward this growing segment of the population and the potential effects of a brief curricular intervention. Of interest, a second-order peer review examines the potential use of virtual reality in rehabilitation. Readers should also explore the Video Gallery and Visual Vignette published online only.
