As part of the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Residency Program, approximately three to five times per year visiting professors are brought in for a series of resident lectures followed by a noon time MEC. This exposes our resident staff to nationally known experts for both educational and networking purposes. Among the visiting professors who have lectured at Carolinas Medical Center over the past five years are:
