Become Tomorrow’s Rehabilitation Researcher!

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. For more information visit the AAP website,, click on RMSTP, or contact the RMSTP Program Coordinator, Mary Czerniak, at or (215) 663-6592.
