Residency & Fellowship Programs

Letter from Our Program Director

Dear Prospective Applicant,

I am very happy that you have thought about Burke for your Rehabilitation Medicine training. As Program Director, I place a very heavy emphasis on the quality of education that our residents receive. Learning occurs everywhere during residency- in the clinic, in the hospital, during didactic lectures, and even at home reviewing EMG textbooks. Learning, however, doesn’t stop with residency. One of my jobs as Program Director is to help nurture curiosity and to support lifelong learning. Shoshin (初心) is a word from Zen Buddhism meaning "beginner's mind." It refers to having an attitude of openness, eagerness, and a lack of preconceptions when studying a subject, even when studying at an advanced level, just as a beginner would. It is this concept that I attempt to embody in my own mind- and to instill in others as well. Even the most expert sub-specialist can learn to see their patients with “fresh eyes.”

I know how challenging residency can be, and wellness is increasingly being incorporated to reduce the risks of physician burnout, something that is plaguing much of the medical community at large. As you will see, Burke Rehabilitation seeks a balance of clinical duties, didactic learning, and life. Our Burke PM&R residency continues to grow, innovate and create. Please take a few minutes to learn more about our exciting program, you won’t be disappointed in what you find.

With warm regards,

Benjamin J. Seidel, DO
Program Director, PM&R Residency
