Rehabilitation Medicine Fellowship
The ACGME-accredited Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM) Fellowship Program at Children’s National Hospital is designed to develop advanced skills in the diagnosis and treatment of children with disabilities to maximize their functional outcomes and improve their quality of life. We offer a two-year program consistent with the requirements of the ABPMR and ACGME.
Our program exposes fellows to diverse patient populations in various clinical settings. We have ample research opportunities. Fellows play an integral role in our division in the training of PM&R and Pediatric residents as well as medical students. Our fellows are mentored to become well-rounded pediatric physiatrists and future leaders in the specialty. As fellows progress through the training, they gain more autonomy in preparation for transition to practice.
