Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Program

The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Program at the University of Rochester is a four-year categorical program (PGY1-PGY4), accredited by the ACGME.  

Our program trains its residents to acquire the essential knowledge and technical skills for rehabilitation and well-being of patients.  We also prepare trainees to practice independently in a variety of settings.  Our program promotes the development of research interests, as well as critical reasoning and administrative skills.  

Our mission is to provide our residents with a balanced clinical experience, covering the broadest range of the field, and provide specialized training to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to practice to the fullest extent of their abilities.

Life of a URMC Resident

Our emphasis on work/life balance is an important reason residents choose URMC. A focus on trainees well-being enables you to learn and thrive in Rochester.

What Our Residents Say...


"I love that we have a categorical program. Not only do we feel included and supported as interns, but also, once you are a resident, you already understand how the hospital runs.  The culture here is one of "we're in this together." My co-residents are my friends, we make a great team, and we've got each other's backs on those inevitable tough days. Our attendings have a wide range of experience, interests, and are invested in our education. They happily take time to teach and mentor the residents.​"

"I chose URMC for my PMR residency because program culture is extremely important to me. From the moment I stepped foot on campus I felt comforted and accepted and knew I was in a place where I could thrive. Coupled with the fact that Rochester is a beautiful city with plenty of outdoor activities to keep my sanity outside of work and a diverse patient population, URMC was the obvious choice for PMR residency."
