Residency & Fellowship Programs

Brain Injury Medicine Fellowship

Overview

As of January 2020, Burke Rehabilitation Hospital is offering a one-year ACGME accredited Brain Injury Medicine Fellowship for two (2) Board Eligible/Board Certified physiatrists and/or neurologists committed to subspecialty training in Brain Injury Medicine.

Vision

The goal of the program is to provide exceptional comprehensive training and education along the spectrum of care in brain injury medicine rehabilitation.

Education, Research and Evaluation

Fellows will rotate at Burke’s main campus and other institutions affiliated with the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, allowing a broad exposure to the spectrum of care for patients with a wide range of severity in brain injury. 

  • Inpatient acute rehabilitation on the Brain Injury Unit at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, located in White Plains, NY, a premier free-standing rehabilitation hospital for comprehensive medical and rehabilitation management of individuals with brain injury.
  • Outpatient brain injury services at our newly renovated outpatient facility on the main campus of Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, including spasticity clinic, multidisciplinary concussion management, and neuropsychology services.
  • Jacobi Medical Center, located in Bronx, NY is a Level I Trauma Center where fellows will rotate with internationally-renowned physicians in acute consultative services, neurosurgery and neuroradiology for patients with brain injuries.
  • Subacute rehabilitation centers will allow rehabilitation consultation services for patients with brain injury in long-term post-acute care settings.

Fellows will participate in performance improvement projects and research, with multiple opportunities available within Burke/Albert Einstein College of Medicine/ Montefiore Health System. Fellows will have ample opportunities for teaching residents and medical students, including monthly journal clubs and didactic lectures to students. Burke supports fellows participating in local, national and international brain injury conferences, as well as community outreach programs and volunteer opportunities.

Housing and Living in New York area

Fellows enjoy the opportunity for subsidized on-campus housing. Fellows can also commute from New York City by car, or only a short train ride from White Plains. 

Wellness and Participation in Community

Burke leadership places the wellness of residents and fellows as one of its highest priorities. Residents and fellows have a large two-room lounge equipped with comfortable furniture, a 55” HDTV, video gaming, computers, and massage chairs. Fellows also have a separate office and access to a private lactation room. Like all Burke employees, fellows also have access to employee health services, inclusive of mental health and wellness counseling.

What's Happening at Burke

Thank you to everyone for making the Burke Award special!

The celebration of the 25th Burke Award Dinner was held on Thursday, September 23, 2021.

This year’s event was extra special as we saluted and honored our Burke Healthcare Heroes who have worked tirelessly treating survivors of COVID-19, as well as traditional rehabilitation patients.

Our staff are truly heroes for the passion, dedication and professionalism they demonstrate every day, especially in the face of this unprecedented challenge. Their efforts have never wavered, and they should be recognized and applauded.

There’s still time to make a donation in support of our Healthcare Heroes.
