UVA’s Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation strives to enhance the quality of life and functional independence of persons with injuries and disabling illness by ensuring excellence in rehabilitative care and management, training and educating persons in the discipline of rehabilitation medicine, and the advancement of knowledge through research.
Our department has an efficient, professional, and detail-oriented staff of 17 expert faculty who treat a wide variety of rehabilitation needs. Our residency training program strives to provide the finest education possible for the next generation of rehabilitation doctors who will enter the workforce.
The University of Virginia Department of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Residency Program offers outstanding training, research, and educational opportunities with two tracks available to MD and DO candidates. We offer a four-year Categorical Program and a three-year Advanced Program and applicants are able to apply to either or both programs.
In a submission to AOCPMR's "What Does Osteopathic Physiatry Mean to You?" video essay contest, our resident, Dr. Emily Hillaker won first place. We could not be more proud of her thoughtful and inspiring composition and are excited to see her recognized at the 65th Annual Mid-Year Meeting and Scientific Seminar in Knoxville, TN. Congratulations Dr. Hillaker!
