Residency Curriculum

The University of Virginia’s Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Program is broken up into four, distinct years. Faculty are committed to providing residents with a well-rounded education at a departmental and individual level, while allowing each resident to explore their interests and passions. Our goal is to create a culture of inclusivity and diversity that enables all residents to reach their maximum potential.

PM&R Didactics

Supplementing the clinical experience are diverse seminars and didactics. A core curriculum forms the basis for a series of lectures given daily by faculty from the Department of PM&R, as well as faculty from related specialties such as Neurosurgery, Neurology, Rheumatology, Pediatrics, Orthopaedics, Bioethics, and Prosthetics & Orthotics. Physical and occupational therapists, speech/language pathologists, neuropsychologists, rehabilitation nurse specialists, rehabilitation engineers and other members of the rehabilitation team contribute lectures and demonstrations, and provide opportunities for hands-on experience. In addition, residents attend monthly Grand Rounds and Journal Club.
