Brain Injury Fellowship

The UW Department of Rehabilitation Medicine offers a one-year clinical fellowship in Brain Injury Medicine. The program is directed by Jennifer M. Zumsteg, M.D. and Cherry Junn, M.D. (Program Co-Directors). Our mission is to enhance community access, regionally and nationally, to physicians with advanced training in the care of those with acquired brain injury through education and personalized mentorship. The Fellow will be part of an interdisciplinary team providing state of the art care to persons with traumatic brain injury, stroke, CNS neoplasms, anoxic brain injury, and other brain disorders.

The clinical fellowship experience includes acute and chronic management of patients, with a wide range of educational opportunities. The Fellow is primarily supervised by PM&R faculty and will also work with neuroradiologists, neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuropsychologists and other medical and rehabilitation providers in support of educational goals. The fellowship curriculum aligns with newly released program requirements and examination outline in Brain Injury Medicine. The program is currently non-ACGME.

UW Medicine is the home of the UW TBI Model System and Harborview Medical Center (HMC). HMC is a Level I Trauma Center and is certified as a primary stroke center by The Joint Commission.

Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in clinical research with a nationally renowned team including physiatry, neuropsychology, clinical psychology, occupational therapy, rehabilitation counseling, and statistics. Additionally, we provide mentorship in educational experiences with opportunities to teach practicing physicians, residents, medical students and allied health care providers.
