Join the Rehabilitation Medicine Scientist Training Program
Where is the evidence base for rehabilitation treatments?
How can we support the value of rehabilitation with payers and policy makers?
Rehabilitation research is the key, and well-trained
rehabilitation researchers are needed for the job! We offer NIH-funded research
training fellowships at competitive salaries to selected individuals to study
with a nationally prominent mentor of their choice for up to 3 years. The goal
of the program is to train a cohort of physiatric researchers – focusing on
both adult and pediatric rehabilitation topics – who can compete successfully
for NIH and other research funds, and who can contribute original research to the
advancement of the field. PGY2 and PGY3 residents, and academic faculty members
within 5 years of completing their training, are invited to attend a research
training workshop held at the annual meeting of the Association of Academic
Physiatrists, to help them prepare for the funded RMSTP fellowship.
Applications for the research training workshop are due December 1, 2012. Applications for the NIH-funded fellowships
are due September 1st of each year.
