Doximity 5-Star Rated Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Accredited Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Program
Comprehensive Training in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation is One of Top Programs in the Country
For over 40 years, the JFK Johnson Rehabilitation Institute has helped shape future leaders in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
The institute offers a Residency Program in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in the assessment and rehabilitation of adults with acquired neurologic illness, including traumatic brain injury, stroke and cerebrovascular disease, amputations, trauma, spinal cord injury and many other general rehabilitation diagnoses. In addition, there are two ACGME fellowships in both pain medicine and brain injury medicine.
“For new doctors, selecting a program for their residency is one of the most important decisions they will make. We take training residents and fellows in our program very seriously and look to put out future leaders in the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation,” said Sara Cuccurullo, M.D., Medical Director of JFK Johnson and Chair of the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. “We appreciate the recognition that Doximity has given our program in ranking it one of the best in the nation.”
The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Residency Program is a joint endeavor with JFK Johnson and Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Each year, more than 500 medical students apply for four spots in the program. The residency has vibrant and engaged alumni, including many who now work as medical directors and residency program directors in rehabilitation programs across the nation. The residency program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and has received Five Stars (the highest rating) from Doximity.
