Rehabilitation Medicine Fellowship
The ACGME-accredited Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM) Fellowship Program at Children’s National Hospital is a two-year program consistent with the requirements of the ABPMR and ACGME.
The program’s mission and aims are:
- Foster the global development of pediatric rehabilitation medicine fellows and transform them into the future leaders in the field
- Develop advanced skills in the diagnosis and treatment of children with disabilities to maximize their functional outcomes and improve their quality of life
- Fellows are exposed to diverse patient populations in various clinical settings and in different points of care continuum
- 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. Fellows play an integral role in our division in the training of PM&R and pediatric residents as well as medical students.
