Advanced Rehabilitation Research Training (UW-ARRT) Fellowship

The Department of Rehabilitation Medicine of the University of Washington School of Medicine has initiated a UW-ARRT fellowship program to provide advanced rehabilitation research training for post-doctoral rehabilitation professionals. The fellowship is funded by a training grant from the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) of the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services in the US Department of Education. In any one year, two post-doctoral fellows will participate in training.

Mentored Research and Training Opportunities

The mentored research opportunities provided by the fellowship can focus on any one of many aspects of rehabilitation research, including, but not limited to:

  • Disparities in access to health services
  • Chronic pain & fatigue
  • Community-based rehabilitation interventions
  • Use of IRT to improve measurement of rehabilitation outcomes
  • Neural control of movement
  • Biomechanical movement analysis
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Health promotion in persons with disabilities
  • Amputation & prosthetics
  • Speech disorders
  • Psychological distress in persons with disabilities
  • Pain and fatigue in youth with disabilities
  • Technology & disability
  • Hypnosis or virtual reality to treat disability
  • Improving employment outcomes

The comprehensive UW-ARRT training will include immersion in a mentored research experience that will match post-doctoral fellows with highly successful rehabilitation researchers. In addition, each fellow will participate in complimentary core and individualized didactics, supporting his or her development as a rehabilitation researcher. The UW-ARRT fellow will join an outstanding and highly interdisciplinary community of research scientists.


Research activities and academic training are located at the University of Washington in Seattle with opportunities to participate in ongoing research at the University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC), Harborview Medical Center (HMC), Seattle Children's, and the Veteran’s Administration Puget Sound Health Care System (VAPSHCS).
