June 14, 2001

KALAMAZOO -- Stanley Paul, an assistant professor of occupational therapy at Western Michigan University, was recently invited by the National Institutes of Health to be an operational review committee member for the Warren Gustafson Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center of the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.

The purpose of the operational review is to enable the organization to operate more economically, efficiently and effectively with the goal of maximizing operating results at the least cost. The review team consisted of directors of rehabilitation medicine and chief operating officers of a number of nationally renowned rehabilitation institutes.

Paul was chosen as a team member on the basis of his extensive experience as a faculty researcher, occupational therapist and clinical researcher in subacute and short-term rehabilitation departments during the past decade. The review team analyzed the operating procedures of the rehabilitation department, examined budget and staffing functions, and provided recommendations to increase the efficiency of the center.
