Loma Linda University Health Education Consortium (LLUHEC) Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Program strives to train exemplary practitioners. Because PM&R is such a broad field, the program is specifically structured to provide experience in a wide variety of services.

Program Highlights

  • Our program is integrated within three participating affiliated hospitals. Residents receive excellent clinical training through exposure to a diverse patient population in the inpatient wards, ambulatory clinics and laboratory.
  • Throughout the three-year residency program, residents are supervised by a staff of teaching clinicians. As the resident progresses, he or she is given increasing clinical responsibilities and is expected to participate in the teaching activities for junior residents and medical students.
  • Most of the teaching occurs around individual patient encounters in the clinics and on the hospital unit. In addition, there are clinical teaching rounds, conferences and lectures on all services
  • Each of the clinical experiences is designed to facilitate rational planning of each resident's clinical assignments. Although a core experience is common to all residents, there is some flexibility in assigning specific rotations.

Residency Application

To apply to LLUHEC’s PM&R Program, complete and submit your application through Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). Refer to the ERAS Timelines and Deadlines for further details.

For the 2023 ERAS® cycle, our program will be collecting and reviewing data from applicants’ supplemental ERAS applications. Completion of the standard MyERAS application is a requirement; completion of the supplemental ERAS application is optional.

In its second year of use, the supplemental ERAS application is designed to help applicants share more information about themselves and assist our program in finding applicants that fit our program’s setting and mission. There is no cost to applicants and participation is optional.

The supplemental ERAS application provides:

  • geographic preferences (by division and by urban or rural setting); 
  • information about an applicant’s most meaningful experiences and other impactful life events, if applicable; and
  • program signals.

The supplemental ERAS application will be delivered on a survey platform that is separate from the MyERAS application and must be completed between August 1 and September 16, 2022.
