Children's Pediatric Rehabilitation

Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics (CMHC) Pediatric Medicine and Rehabilitation department offers a two-year ACGME accredited fellowship designed to develop advanced skills in the diagnosis and treatment of children with disabilities. Fellows will have completed an approved residency training program in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and may have additionally completed a Pediatrics Residency or a joint Pediatrics/PM&R Residency. The clinical and didactic experiences are intended to expand their knowledge of pediatric conditions resulting in disability, including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy, neuromuscular disease, neural tube defects, amputations and others in order to prepare them for a successful pediatric rehabilitation practice. The PM&R curriculum is divided into block rotations of three months each. Educational programs are held in conjunction with the University of Kansas Medical Center Core Rehabilitation Medicine Program.

CMHC is a regional, tertiary referral center. It is the only free-standing children’s hospital between St. Louis to the east, Denver to the west, Omaha to the north and Little Rock to the south. CMHC is consistently recognized as one of the top childrens hospitals in the United States. The hospital has the generous support of an extraordinary community. With their help they have built a special hospital offering outstanding facilities that combine the latest in technology and patient care services with a beautiful family-friendly environment.
