The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency program at Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas is a three-year, comprehensive and structured training and educational program. Nine residents (three accepted to the program each year) work one-on-one with attending faculty members on the medical staff at Baylor. These includes board certified Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation physicians as well as physicians and health care professionals in related specialties.
At 1,069 beds, Baylor University Medical Center is a Level I trauma center and tertiary referral hospital that offers residents experience with a wide range of diagnoses. Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation residents also gain experience working with patients at Baylor Institute for Rehabilitation (BIR), a 90-bed stand-alone facility that has received repeated recognition as one of the country’s top rehabilitation hospitals from U.S. News and World Report’s annual “America’s Best Hospitals.”
BIR also has been designated by the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research as a model system for the treatment and care of traumatic brain injury patients.
Residents follow up to 14 patients with progressive autonomy throughout the program’s three years. Graduates either enter private practice or pursue fellowships in various Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation sub-specialty areas.
