Our residents gain training and experience in all aspects of the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) by utilizing the resources of UT Health San Antonio, the University Health System and the South Texas Veterans Health Care System, in addition to community resources. Our patient population is large and varied, encompasses all age groups, and includes private, indigent and VA patients. We have a very favorable ratio of faculty physicians to residents (17 faculty physiatrists/32 residents), which assures the resident of adequate guidance and supervision and of an optimal teaching program.
Our educational capabilities are, of course, greatly enhanced by the availability of multiple other teaching activities in the School of Medicine and the other units of the UT Health San Antonio, all of these are available to our residents, including the UT Health San Antonio medical library, Learning Resources Center and demand access television.
In addition, residents attend interdisciplinary teaching clinics or conferences such as Spine Clinic, Musculoskeletal Clinic, Neuro Rehab Clinic, Amputee/Orthotic/Neurolysis Clinics, PM&R Clinic, Pain Clinic, Spasticity Clinic, Spinal Cord Injury Clinic, Urodynamic Clinic, Wheelchair Clinic, and Wound Clinic.
The Department of Rehabilitation Medicine offers an ACGME-accredited four-year categorical residency training program, providing 36 months of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation training and 12 months of fundamental clinical skills as required by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
