About the Program

At the Jefferson Pediatrics/Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Residency, our ultimate goal is to create passionate physicians who are committed to maximizing and fiercely advocating for the functional potential of children of all abilities.

Becoming an excellent pediatric physiatrist requires lots of hard work and support along the way. Here, you'll find the individualized and challenging learning atmosphere you have been hoping for. You will also find mentors and peers who are dedicated to seeing you grow as a physician and individual.

We are privileged to teach residents from around the country, offering a unique curriculum that will prepare them for careers in pediatric physiatry. Our commitment to excellence and our sense of community make training at Jefferson Pediatrics/PM&R Residency a rewarding experience, one that will last many years after graduation. 

Program Components

The Combined Program

This unique residency program provides residents with the knowledge and skills to provide proactive medical management to pediatric patients with disabilities. Established in 1996, this combined program encourages residents to take advantage of the extensive resources and learning opportunities available within both residency training programs. Upon completion, residents are triple board eligible (General Pediatrics, PM&R, and Pediatric Rehabilitation).


Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children, an operating entity of the Nemours Foundation, serves as the primary teaching hospital for the pediatric residency program. The 208-bed facility is Delaware’s only pediatric Level 1 Trauma Center. The hospital has full-time and community-based faculty of 465, consisting of general pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists representing all disciplines. The residency program emphasizes balance, diversity, and flexibility. It is designed to provide the resident with exposure to a wide variety of pediatric pathology and patient care environments including urban, suburban, and rural pediatric populations.


We have a fantastic team of caring and supportive attendings. All Jefferson Pediatrics/PM&R Residency faculty are passionate about making a difference in children's lives, and strive to impart the same drive in their trainees. Get to know our committed team and their role in continuing our tradition of academic excellence.
