The University of Washington Department of Rehabilitation Medicine offers clinical training, fellowships, and academic degree programs. 


The department offers three residency programs: 

  • Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Residency Program, an ACGME-accredited program that accepts residents into the PGY-1 and PGY-2 levels, and currently has 30 residents; 
  • Physical Therapy residencies in acute, pediatric, neurologic, and orthopedic care; 
  • Rehabilitation Psychology residency, jointly offered with the Department of Psychiatry & Behavioral Science.


We offer fellowships in amputation rehabilitation, brain injury medicine, multiple sclerosis, pediatric rehabilitation medicine, spinal cord injury medicine, and sports medicine. In coordination with VAPSHCS, we offer a PM&R chief resident position in quality and patient safety. We also offer a fellowship in rehabilitation research for those with related PhDs, and a hand therapy fellowship for occupational therapists interested in additional focus on hands. 


We offer nine different medical student clerkship courses at seven different clinical sites.
