Observation for Health Professionals

Texas Children’s is committed to keeping our patients, staff and employees safe. Please make note of our revised requirements listed below. Thank you for your support and attention in this matter. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

It is the mission of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department to support the hospital’s mission by helping patients obtain their highest level of functional independence through education, therapeutic intervention, and research. This is accomplished by providing high quality rehabilitative care that is individualized and family-centered, timely, cost-effective and coordinated, for patients ages newborn – adult, with a variety of diagnosis and with respect to all patients’ rights, dignity, privacy, confidentiality and safety. The goal of an observation experience entails watching treatment sessions without patient contact.
