The program offers residents a unique blend of a university academic milieu, coupled with extensive outpatient musculoskeletal training in a community setting. Residents receive some of the most extensive outpatient musculoskeletal and electrodiagnostic experiences available in a PM&R residency, while training at a premier rehabilitation institute, and working side by side with nationally recognized faculty.

Regardless of their area of emphasis, all graduates will have been trained in the entire spectrum of physical medicine and rehabilitation from traumatic brain and spinal cord injury, to electromyography, to industrial, pain and musculoskeletal medicine.
