Founded in 1973, the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Residency Program at the Louisiana State University Medical Center (LSUMC) is dedicated to providing superior, comprehensive training in rehabilitation care. PM&R residents work closely with skilled, experienced physicians in a variety of practice settings, including acute medical/surgical units, subacute rehabilitation facilities, and outpatient rehabilitation clinics.
Under faculty guidance, our residents care for a diverse patient population and gain in-depth exposure to a range of physical medicine and rehabilitation areas, including musculoskeletal medicine, spine care, chronic pain, spinal cord injury, neuropathy, neuromuscular disorders, joint replacement, disuse atrophy, brain injury, occupational injuries, sports medicine, stroke rehabilitation, electrodiagnostics, and prosthetics. PM&R faculty members encourage residents to make independent decisions on patient care, treatment, and management, yet provide appropriate guidance and supervision.
Through a balanced curriculum of didactics and clinical experience, PM&R residents graduate with the confidence, clinical skills, and knowledge they need to practice in the settings of their choice.
