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.
- 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.
