  • One of the most important duties inherent in an educational program is the presentation of case reports and scientific data at Multidisciplinary Rounds and at a wide variety of meetings and conferences.  Residents are expected to present during journal club, case of the month, and other venues depending on individual rotation.

National and In-service Exams

  • National and in-service (course) examinations are annually administered and subsequently used as teaching tools in round-table review. 
    • AAPMR Self Assessment Exam (SAE) 

Scholarly Productivity & Research

Scholarly activity is an important required component of a resident’s training.  Faculty mentors are assigned/or chosen by each resident.  During your course of training, you will meet routinely with your Program Director as well as your faculty mentor to review your progress and scholarly productivity.  

During your residency, you will be required to submit abstracts to peer-reviewed journals, national and regional organized meetings, have a formal research presentation at a national or regional organized medical meeting or have a publication of an original article, book chapter or review article. 

The program sponsors residents with accepted abstracts to national meeting such as the annual American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, annual American Academy of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (AAPM&R) or the annual Association of Academic Physiatrists (AAP).
