Before entering our program

A PGY-1 year must be completed in a program approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education or American Osteopathic Association.

Our Program must provide documentation to the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation indicating how the resident acquired his or her fundamental clinical skills. We must identify the rotations (specialties and subspecialties) the resident has taken, or will take, to complete the fundamental clinical skills requirement.

Fundamental Clinical Skills: One of the four years of training is to develop fundamental clinical skills. This year of training in fundamental clinical skills must consist of an accredited transitional year or include at least six months in accredited training in family medicine, internal medicine, emergency medicine, obstetrics-gynecology, pediatrics or surgery, or any combination of these patient care experiences.

The remaining months of this year may include any combination of accredited specialties or sub-specialties. Accredited training in any of the specialties or sub-specialties selected must be for a period of at least four weeks. No more than eight weeks may be in non-direct patient care experiences, such as pathology, radiology and research.
