Research Track

Explore research opportunities while completing your residency in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

The research-intensive track is designed to provide a mentored, longitudinal experience in research to support residents interested in pursuing substantial, independent research after residency. This track provides an opportunity for protected research time, advanced research mentorship, and independent continuation of their research upon graduation.

The Department of Rehabilitation Medicine will support up to three residents in this track per year (1 resident per class). Research track residents must apply as an incoming PGY2. Research track residents will be strongly encouraged to apply to the Rehabilitation Medicine Scientist Training Program (RMSTP) of the Association of Academic Physiatrists in their PGY3 to PGY4 year. The goal is to prepare the resident to apply for a training grant, such as a NIH K award, KL2 Scholars award, and VA Career Development Award.
