It is typical for 75% or more of our graduates to go on to fellowship training in brain injury medicine, hospice and palliative medicine, pain medicine, pediatric rehabilitation medicine, spinal cord injury medicine, and sports medicine. Our residents practice in a variety of settings, including academic medicine and private practice, for their career.

Graduates of our program have a 97% pass rate for the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation certifying exam. This is higher than the national pass rate of 88%.
