Overview of the Program
The purpose of the Rehabilitation Medicine Residency Program at Thomas Jefferson University is to prepare physicians to excel in all aspects of physical medicine and rehabilitation. The faculty, in conjunction with the residents, has designed a program that exposes the physiatrist-in-training to extremely broad and varied learning experiences, a diverse patient population, state-of-the-art treatments and nationally renowned faculty members.
