Our mission in the Department of PM&R is to train residents in all aspects of physical medicine and rehabilitation to produce residents with a broad set of skills that will prepare them for a smooth transition to a general private or academic practice.

Our ideal faculty-to-resident ratio (>4:1) provides for concentrated teaching at the bedside, in the clinic and within a well-structured didactic curriculum. Our faculty is comprised of academic professionals and physicians with active private practices. This balance of experience and perspective provides our residents with a comprehensive understanding and advanced training in the many facets of PM&R practice.
