Graduate Medical Education Community Resources
As a fellow, you are part of a vibrant community of residents, fellows and faculty.
In the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine we are home to a residency program, three additional fellowships and both master's degree and doctoral degree students. We welcome fellows to take part in Department-specific events such as grand rounds, our annual guest lecture event and social events to ensure that you feel part of this community!
The greater Graduate Medical Education (GME) community houses various committees you can join, as well as serves as a great resource for assistance if needed. GME manages the Resident and Fellow Assistant Program, a centeralized orientation, and offers many opportunities for you to connect other trainees outside of your department.
