Residency

Burke Rehabilitation Hospital has been a longstanding leader in clinical care, research and innovation—and is now home to a nationally recognized Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency program. The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited program envisions being the future benchmark for all Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residency programs in the country.

Rehabilitation Residency

Burke’s goal is to produce healthcare leaders known for innovation in all branches of Physiatry who will go on to utilize their training to improve patient care, advance the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and enhance healthcare in the communities they serve.

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.
