Welcome to MossRehab/Einstein Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Training Program

The Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Training Program at MossRehab and Einstein Healthcare Network focuses on interdisciplinary education for Residents, Fellows and Medical Students. Using evidence-based clinical care, our program encourages Residents to pursue academic and research activities that improve medical rehabilitation education and a emphasize outcomes that promote independent self-care for individuals with disabilities related to neuromusculoskeletal and cardiopulmonary pathologies. 

Our program aims to provide the highest level of care possible to improve the lives of persons with disabilities and has been a nationally recognized premier center. MossRehab has been in the forefront of PM&R education and research for more than five decades and in rehabilitation care for over one century. Although new as an independent educational program, we have served as primary educators for others in the region.

After completing their training in PM&R, Residents will exhibit knowledge, skills, and attitudes that allow for successful independent practice. They will achieve milestones in the medical competencies to care for persons with acute and chronic disabilities related to injury and illness in inpatient and outpatient settings. Residents will learn to manage medical issues related to rehabilitation therapies, procedures, and management of neuromusculoskeletal and cardiopulmonary disabilities.

Residents will also be able to lead interdisciplinary team-based patient care activities and communicate effectively. They will provide care with compassion, empathy, integrity, and accountability, show respect for others and exhibit highly ethical behavior. Finally, Residents will learn to provide cost-effective medical treatment in all medical settings, including acute hospitals, inpatient rehabilitation facilities, subacute nursing facilities, home care, and outpatient care.

With 198 beds, MossRehab's main campus offers exposure and experience in a wide array of inpatient subspecialty rehabilitation areas, acute care hospital consults, EMG, OP multispecialty rehabilitation care and procedures. Our 24 board certified physiatrists, many with one or more subspecialty, clinical staff and therapists, prosthetists, orthotists and consulting physicians will be involved in your education. IP subspecialty programs and OP consultations with large patient volumes, EMG and procedures afford excellent training opportunities. The specialty functional laboratories in Gait & Motion Analysis and Motor Control allow exposure to complex evaluations and treatment planning and access to specialized equipment. The Moss Rehabilitation Research Institute (MRRI) provides opportunities for clinical research education and collaboration.
