The Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine offers a comprehensive residency training program in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. Our four-year residency is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) of the American Medical Association. All residents are accepted at the PGY1 level through the National Residency Match Program. Any open PGY2 residency position is evaluated on an individual basis. The Residency Program is designed to teach the holistic, interdisciplinary team approach to health care as outlined in the training objectives of the ACGME specialty requirements. As such, emphasis is placed on maximizing the physical, psychological, social, vocational and avocational potential of all patients. Our departmental goal is to provide each resident with the best possible didactic and clinical education program, in order to fully prepare residents for a career in academic or private practice physiatry.
