Requirements for specialty certification by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation include four years of postgraduate medical education with one year of broad-based clinical training and three years of specialty training. The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at Northwestern University offers two fully accredited residency programs, a categorical program and a specialty program. Several months of each program are available for electives that can be designed to fulfill the needs and special interests of individual residents.  In addition, residents are involved in ongoing outpatient management through weekly clinics. Our broad-based educational program prepares resident physicians for a career in either an academic setting or private practice. Additional information is available on the topics listed below.
