Physician Residency and Fellowship Programs

The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) offers several different training programs. Each one is robust and offers a tremendous learning opportunity.  We offer both residency and fellowship programs in a variety of topics:

PM&R Residency Program

The goal of this residency program is to train leaders in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. We introduce residents to research techniques and current literature to instill lifelong learning patterns that enable them to make outstanding contributions to the field. To that end, the department provides a three year (PGY2-4) program with extensive training in the evidence-based diagnosis, care, and treatment of patients with disabilities.

The PM&R Residency Program in inpatient and outpatient physiatry. Residents experience an exceptionally diverse patient population-- both diagnostically and culturally. Many opportunities exist to develop scholarship in research, teaching, and patient care. We believe that you will find our program to be exciting, fulfilling, and career-enhancing.

The program features a robust didactic curriculum, with emphasis on interactive learning. Service obligations for residents are minimized with mid-level providers (NP or PA) assigned to each inpatient unit to assist with patient care responsibilities.

The PM&R Residency Program will have available two PGY1 positions and four PGY2 positions.  Applicants should apply through the AAMC ERAS system in the fall of 2015. The PGY1 positions will be offered in conjunction with the Johns Hopkins Bayview Hospital.

For more information, please see our Residency Program Brochure.
