The Rehabilitation Medicine Scientist Training Program (RMSTP) provides research training, mentorship and career development support for physiatrists committed to developing productive careers in academic medicine and research. The ultimate aim of RMSTP is to increase the number of rigorously training, extramurally competitive and scientifically productive faculty members in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
Physiatric Research Consulting Program
The objective of the Physiatric Research Development Consulting Program is to increase physiatric research capacity by providing customized assistance and recommendations for developing a physiatric research program for institutions currently seeking to expand or develop their research program. The program consists of a pre-visit evaluation, onsite visitation, and specific customized recommendations for implementing or increasing the capacity of research at the institution.
The Rehabilitation Research Experience for Medical Students (RREMS) is an eight-week funded summer externship designed to expose medical students to a structured research experience and respected academic physiatrists. Established in 2007, this competitive program has helped over 70 medical students with little exposure to PM&R confidently choose a fulfilling career. First year medical students are encouraged to apply, but all are welcome.
The UC Irvine/ AAP Research Badges are a step-by-step guide designed to help PM&R residents and young faculty to 1) identify the knowledge and skills required for conducting research, and 2) answer some of the most commonly encountered questions as you undertake research and publication. Successful completion of the badges in the guide will help you feel prepared to start your journey into rehabilitation research.
The AAP offers “Excellence in Writing” Awards to honor authors of the best scientific articles submitted to the American Journal of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (AJPM&R) each year and the “Carolyn L. Braddom Research Award” to encourage research by recognizing an individual who, over the previous decade, has conducted research that has had significant impact on the science and practice of PM&R.
