Burke Rehabilitation Hospital has been a longstanding leader in clinical care, research and innovation—and is now home to a nationally recognized Physical Medical and Rehabilitation residency program. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-approved program envisions being the future benchmark for all Physical Medical and Rehabilitation residency programs in the country.
Burke’s goal is to produce healthcare leaders known for innovation in all branches of physiatry. This will be accomplished by rigorous training and to develop highly skilled clinical and academic physiatrists. Our residents will receive a unique training experience and work directly with neurologists, physiatrists, rheumatologists, internists, cardiologists and pulmonologists on Burke’s rehabilitation units. They will also have an opportunity to work closely with research scientists from the world-renowned Burke Medical Research Institute, which is located on Burke’s 61-acre campus in White Plains.
Burke aims to teach residents who will go on to utilize their training to improve patient care, advance the field of Physical Medical and Rehabilitation and enhance healthcare in the communities they serve.
We offer a 3-year Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency program, which is affiliated with Albert Einstein College of Medicine. We also offer a one-year neurorehabilitation fellowship under the Department of Neurology, AECOM. In the future, we plan to expand the program by including fellowships in traumatic brain injury, sports concussion and spinal cord injury.
We currently also offer two to four week medical student electives and invite medical students interested in our PM&R residency to contact us to arrange an elective or observership.
