Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Residency
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.
Residents at Jefferson satisfy training requirements as outlined by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education and the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Numerous inpatient and outpatient programs are conducted at several medical facilities located throughout the Delaware Valley region.
There is also opportunity for pursuing a combined residency in physiatry and pediatrics offered with the Nemours/Afred I. duPont Hospital for Children.
We encourage you to apply as soon as possible. We start to receive your applications from ERAS on September 1, and by December 15th many of our interview openings have already been assigned.
