PMR Residency

The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) Residency at SUNY Upstate Medical University provides excellent training in physiatry, preparing residents for future fellowships and careers. Strengths of the academic program include broad clinical experiences, specialization in Pediatrics, Pain Management, Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), Musculoskeletal Outpatient, and Prosthetics and Orthotics, and research opportunities and support. 


Our mission is to prepare PMR physicians to improve the health of the special populations that we serve through patient centered, competent, culturally sensitive, and systems based medical care; advocacy for inclusive and quality health care; and clinical research to advance PMR-related science.
