Rehabilitation Residency

VISION STATEMENT
The Burke Rehabilitation Residency Program commits to becoming a top tier program in PM&R. We aim to produce leaders in the field by aligning the program and residents’ goals and interest and by offering the highest quality education.

MISSION STATEMENT
The Burke Rehabilitation Hospital Residency program in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation seeks to attract exceptional medical students by maintaining a strong reputation and aligning our educational program with the interest of our residents.

Our mission includes pursuing the highest standards in medical and physiatric education, training the next generation of physiatrists and sharing this knowledge and skill with our colleagues, residents, students, patients and the community we serve. The program aims to prepare our residents for unsupervised practice of PMR through the acquisition of all general and PMR specific core competencies in a thoughtful, developmental sequence as guided by the Physiatric Milestones.

The program intends to educate trainees who strive for excellence in patient care with a focus on maximizing the function and health of individuals with physical disability.  Such care includes the delivery of acute and comprehensive physical medicine and rehabilitation services in an interdisciplinary continuum of care geared toward the most positive, cost effective outcome possible.

We also want to support trainees to contribute to the research mission of our hospital, nation, and the world by pursuing new knowledge, whether at the bench or bedside.

Burke residents receive a unique training experience. Our 150 bed hospital, situated on a beautiful 61-acre campus, provides educational experiences on 5 different specialized units: Traumatic Brain Injury, Spinal Cord Injury, Stroke, Orthopedics and Cardio-pulmonary rehabilitation units. The residents work directly with inpatient neurologists, physiatrists, rheumatologists, internists, cardiologists and pulmonologists. In addition to Burke’s own outpatient unit, our residents have an opportunity rotate at several nearby specialty outpatient centers.

We offer a 3-year advanced 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.
