The main objective of the PM&R residency program is to provide trainees with clinical skills necessary to acquire competencies in clinical practice of rehabilitation medicine. Every effort is made to keep the program flexible and to provide the most effective way of clinical and academic training based on the unique talents of each resident. Our program takes into consideration special clinical, academic and research interests of each resident and helps to channel their career growth and development.
We believe that our PM&R Residency Program will prepare residents well for a career in either private practice or academic medicine, as well as Board certification in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
Our program offers two training tracks: 4-year categorical and 3-year advanced tracks.
The program is approved for a total of 16 resident positions, two at PGY-1 level, and 14 distributed between PGY2-4 levels.
This 48-month track integrates 12 months of basic clinical rotations (PGY-1) and 36 months (PGY2 – PGY4) of PM&R training.
Residents who join the program on the advanced track complete 36 months of PM&R training. The prerequisite for this track is a completion of 12 months of basic clinical training, such as a transitional year or internship; these must be accredited by ACGME, Royal College of Physicians, or AOA.
