Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation

Unity Hospital

Director’s Letter

Welcome to the Unity Hospital – Rochester Regional Health Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Program Website. Our health system consists of 8 hospitals serving a diverse population in both urban and rural settings. The majority of your experience will take place at Unity Hospital and its associated Ridgeway outpatient center. You will gain additional consult and outpatient experience at Rochester General Hospital. Our rehabilitation programs have been accredited by CARF since the mid 1990’s. Our system’s focus has been on improving the health and quality of life in our region and aim to provide you with the skills to enhance the health of the community where you reside in the future.

As PMR is under the umbrella of Neurosciences with Neurology, Neurosurgery, Pain and Spine, Neuropsychology and all of the therapy services, we are able to provide you with exposure to seamless integrated healthcare and opportunities to develop optimal clinical skills. Our affiliation with the Rochester Institute of Technology will allow you to work with experts in biomedical engineering and other technologies on clinical research projects.

I hope the information that follows on our website is helpful to you as you begin to make critical decisions for your future as a rehabilitation physician.

PMR Residency Program Director
Unity Hospital

About the Program

Physicians specializing in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) understand that optimizing functional ability is the key to improving the quality and experience of life. PM&R specialists (Physiatrists) have expertise in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of impairments and disabilities regardless of the type of initial disease or injury. They offer a holistic approach to patient care that considers not only the specific disease or injury, but also the patient’s goals, cultural and socioeconomic setting, family, work, and social roles.

Working with an interdisciplinary team that includes nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology, neuropsychology, advanced practice providers, social work/case management, medical specialists, and many others, physiatrists focus on maximizing each patient’s function and independence.

The PM&R Residency at Unity Hospital prepares you to provide optimal diagnostic and rehabilitative care through a diverse clinical experience. You will have the opportunity to work not only with physiatrists who are clinical experts, but also with neurologists, pain management physicians, vascular surgeons (amputee care), orthopedic sports medicine, pediatricians, and geriatricians, among others. Our relationship with Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) provides access to research in rehabilitation and biomedical engineering and access technology. The residency prepares you for clinical practice, medical education, fellowship programs and clinical research.

Residency Features

  • A learning environment that fosters the development of clinical diagnostic and treatment skills, critical thinking and analysis, evidence-based practice, working in a team-based approach, and emotional and physical well-being.
  • A balance between inpatient and outpatient experiences.
  • Extensive EMG and musculoskeletal training
  • Training in injection techniques, use of ultrasound for diagnosis and treatment.
  • Exposure to interventional and conservative spine care and pain management.
  • A close relationship with Neurology, Neurosurgery, Pain Management, Neuropsychology, Sports Medicine and all of the therapy disciplines.
  • Opportunities for teaching and research.

Certification

After completing the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation residency you will be eligible to take the certification examination offered by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (ABPMR).

TheUnity Hospital Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Residency is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Additional Program Details

Research Experience

The research program includes planning a project that you complete during your residency as well as didactics covering the foundations of research. Residents prepare 2 seminar presentations during their residency that represent the introduction and background for your research project and secondly the presentation of results and implications. Residents are encouraged to submit their research for presentation at a national meeting. If accepted the department supports attendance at that meeting. In addition, each resident is provided funds to attend a meeting of their choice as an educational and networking opportunity.

Teaching Opportunities

Residents have the opportunity to teach medical students, nurses, therapists from all disciplines as well as residents from other RRH program.

Call Frequency

Call frequency will vary depending on rotation and PGY year. RRH follows the duty hour recommendations of the ACGME.

Board Exam Preparation

Each year the residents will take the he in-service training examination. Mock oral examinations are offered a minimum of 2 times a year.
