About the Program

On behalf of the faculty and staff of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Cincinnati, I would like to thank you for your interest in our residency training program. I hope that you will take a few minutes to read about our program and understand why we are so proud of it.

The following is a list of why I hope you will consider continuing your medical education at the University of Cincinnati:

The Residency

  • A diverse clinical exposure, both in terms of disease process and socio-economic background
  • Close daily contact between residents and faculty
  • Close proximity of training sites
  • Strong social network of residents and a supportive family-like atmosphere
  • A resident continuity clinic where residents can follow and manage their own patients
  • Three months of electives, which allows the residents to develop enhanced expertise in the areas of PM&R that are of most interest to them
  • A strong didactic component with a new emphasis on integrating clinical and basic neurosciences
  • Front-loaded call system with no in house call after the first year
  • A preliminary year in internal medicine at the University of Cincinnati with 6 months of rehabilitation related electives and limited in house call

 

The PMR Division

  • Faculty with a wide range of professional interests and expertise who enjoy mentoring and teaching residents
  • Active participation in The Neuroscience Institute, encompassing first-class clinical facilities, internationally renowned physicians and scientists with expertise in all neuroscience specialties and nationally recognized education and research programs
  • The largest Division of Pediatric Rehabilitation and Pediatric Rehabilitation training program in the nation
  • An active research program in both adult and pediatric rehabilitation with nearly 10 million dollars in external research funding.

 

If you are seeking a program with a Director, Program Director, and faculty sincerely interested in the welfare and education of its trainees and a program that combines academic excellence with a supportive and collegial environment then The University of Cincinnati PM&R may be the program for you! I would urge you to schedule an interview and come meet our residents and faculty and see for yourself why we are so proud of our program.
