Spinal Cord Injury Medicine Fellowship

The University of Washington Department of Rehabilitation Medicine offers a one-year Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education accredited fellowship in Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Medicine.

The mission of the fellowship program is to provide physicians with the knowledge and skills to deliver comprehensive, quality, and compassionate care to individuals with SCI. Care is provided throughout the lifetime of injury with the goals to maximize health, independence, productivity, and quality of life. Person-centered care, interdisciplinary collaboration, education, and academic scholarship and research are highly valued.

The curriculum emphasizes the lifelong nature of rehabilitation. SCI Medicine fellows work with persons with acute SCI in intensive care settings and inpatient rehabilitation units, focusing on initial rehabilitation services and education. SCI Medicine fellows also work on developing skills to manage the primary care needs and medical complications for individuals with chronic SCI.

SCI Medicine fellows work closely with SCI board certified physicians, as well as certified rehabilitation nurses, rehabilitation psychologists and social workers, physical therapy and occupational therapy clinical specialists, recreation therapists, urologists, plastic surgeons, and neurosurgeons.
