During the PGY 1 year, each resident participates in defined core rotations designed to develop fundamental clinical skills. The goal of core rotations is to prepare the individual to care for complex rehabilitation patients during subsequent training years.
During the PGY 2 year, residents spend most of their time on the inpatient rehabilitation services, caring for patients with various orthopedic and neurologic conditions.
As the resident advanced to PGY 3 and 4, he or she will experience more consultative and outpatient rehabilitation medicine. The goals are to develop critical thinking skills related to systems of care and diagnosis and management of outpatient musculoskeletal and neurologic disorders.
