The Department is involved in the operation of three inpatient rehabilitation units in the primary teaching and affiliated hospitals. During the residency training program, each resident is assigned responsibility for patients on each of these units on a rotational basis. During the remainder of the training program, the resident is assigned on a rotational basis to each of the other clinical areas within the Department. In addition, residents attend interdisciplinary teaching clinics or conferences such as Spinal Cord Injury Clinic, Spine Clinic, Musculoskeletal Clinic, Neuro Rehab Clinic, Amputee/Orthotic/Neurolysis Clinics, PM & R Clinic, Pain Clinic, Urodynamic and SCI Clinics. Intensive formal and informal instruction and experience are given to each resident in electrodiagnostic medicine test procedures. The training and experience afforded in these areas exceed that recommended by the American Board of Electrodiagnostic Medicine. A new state of the art gait lab has been added for resident training and research programs. We have an active Pediatric Rehabilitation Program to which each resident is assigned for two months.
Residents rotate at all of the following facilities:
