Welcome From the Director

Residency training has at its core to expose and educate physicians on the complexities of the specialty. Rush University Medical Center has two mandates: excellence in patient care and a strong focus on education. The program is part of a university system with all primary and specialty assistance available at all hours of the day or night. Physical medicine and rehabilitation is a popular department in the university, evidenced by its frequent visitors from outside schools and rotations from within, including the departments of anesthesiology (pain fellows), geriatrics, neurology, internal medicine and students from the physician assistant studies program at Rush.

Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County, Edwards Hines, Jr. VA Hospital, University of Illinois Medical Center and Shriners Hospital for Children (Chicago). Along with stimulating experiences obtained from the finest clinicians in the Chicago area, Rush provides a wealth of experience in a variety of institutional and clinical systems.
