Physical medicine and rehabilitation residency overview
Regions Hospital is an affiliate for the University of Minnesota Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMandR) program. There are approximately five residents per year in the three-year program. We consistently have two residents working in our department, one in the inpatient rehabilitation and the other in the new Neuroscience Center. While working at Regions, the residents partner with our highly skilled team of therapists. They learn about rehabilitating patients who have had traumatic brain injuries, strokes, spinal cord injuries, and other events that have impaired their mobility, cognition or daily activities. When working with the physiatrist at the Neuroscience Center, the residents participate in outpatient rehabilitation involving recovery from brain injury and strokes and manage those with spasticity, spinal cord injuries, and back and musculoskeletal pain. They also improve their electromyography (EMG) and spinal procedure skills.
