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.

How to Apply

Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine Fellowship program participates in ERAS and NRMP. Requirements for fellowship candidacy include:
  • Successful completion of an ACGME accredited residency program in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, or
  • Successful completion of an ACGME accredited combined residency program in PM&R/Pediatrics, or
  • Successful completion of ACGME accredited residencies in PM&R and Pediatrics, and
  • American Board of PM&R certification or eligibility, and

Interviews of the applicants for the 2022 academic year will be conducted on September 30, October 4 and October 28, 2021 virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Interested candidates should complete the application process through ERAS two weeks prior to that to be considered for the interview.
