Pediatrics / PM&R Combined Program

Residents in the combined program spend the first year in pediatrics as an intern doing all the same rotations as the categorical pediatric residents with the exception of one month of pediatric rehabilitation. The next two years are divided evenly between the programs, and in years 4 and 5 residents there is progressively more rehabilitation medicine and less pediatrics. The last year is entirely pediatric rehabilitation.

Features of the program:
Begin pediatric rehabilitation in the first year
Continue pediatrics through the beginning of your 5th year to keep up skills
Eligibility to sit for the American Board of Pediatrics examination in the fifth year after completing pediatric rotations
After the first year, alternate continuity clinic with “Special Babies” clinic—follow up practice for children who were discharged from the neonatal ICU
Opportunity to work with orthopedists/physiatrist in upper extremity surgery and amputee clinics at Shriners Hospital in the fifth year
Sixth year (fellowship year) built in so graduates are eligible to sit for the pediatric rehabilitation subspecialty boards upon completion of the program
