The ACGME-accredited Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM) Fellowship Program at Children’s National Health System is designed to develop advanced skills in the diagnosis and treatment of children with disabilities. We offer one- and two-year programs. The length of the fellowship is based on the applicant’s previous training, and is consistent with the requirements of the ABPMR and ACGME.
Fellows are responsible for participating in the care of pediatric patients in inpatient and outpatient clinical settings. This includes performing and documenting a history and physical examination, formulating and executing diagnosis and treatment plans, and leading the treatment team for the patient in conjunction with the attending physiatrist. The PRM fellows relay recommendations to the patients and their families once the evaluation is complete and facilitate the discussion with the patients and families to make sure that all questions and concerns are addressed.
The Pediatric Anesthesiology Fellowship is affiliated with George Washington University in Washington, DC.
