The curriculum for the Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation residency program at the University of Toledo features 34 months of required rotations and two months of electives. All rotations are completed at the University of Toledo Medical Center, with the exception of periodic outpatient training at the VA clinic which is a very short drive from our hospital, the sports medicine and pediatric rotation (all of which are in Toledo). Inpatient months are composed of managing a 40 bed general rehabilitation unit and following patients with stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury among many other conditions. The outpatient clinic months include EMG and procedural training from multiple physicians, including Botulinum toxin, fluoroscopic spine procedures and ultrasound-guided joint and soft tissue injections, as well as experience in a general rehabilitation clinic setting. A weekly resident continuity clinic is also scheduled for your second and third years of training to gain experience treating and managing your own patients. A typical three year schedule can be seen below.
NEW to the Curriculum! We will be arranging a monthly training sessions with cadaver specimens to work on ultrasound and fluoroscopic guided procedure techniques.
