The ACGME accredited PRM fellowship at the University of Michigan provides a broad perspective in the evaluation as well as the in-patient and outpatient management of various disorders encountered in pediatric rehabilitation including many rare genetic conditions. In-depth training opportunities are available for the more commonly encountered conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, Neuromuscular Disorders, and Traumatic injuries including Spinal Cord Injury, Brain Injury, Amputations and Burns. We also address transition concerns and have a CP clinic for adults as well as an adult home ventilator program. Fellows will have the opportunity to participate in other settings, such as school clinics and a week long camp for children on home ventilation and every effort will be made to tailor the program to suit the fellows’ specific interests while still maintaining focus on the core curriculum needs.
 
The Department of PM&R already has a longstanding, well-recognized core residency training program and an accredited fellowship program in Spinal Cord Medicine along with a non-accredited Spine Fellowship program.  Additionally it has trained numerous Pediatric Rehabilitation fellows over the years in our previous non-accredited PRM fellowship and T32 Research Training Program. Research is part of the fellowship curriculum with opportunities for the fellow to compete for scholarship in medical education as well as research training
 
The University of Michigan Health System, housed in the charming and very livable city of Ann Arbor is a renowned academic institution that boasts of a brand new Children’s and Women’s Hospital with state of the art facilities. The pediatric rehabilitation physicians are well-respected and integrated into many different treatment teams within the health system including pediatric brachial plexus program, home ventilator management program, spina bifida, pediatric palliative care etc. PM&R faculty include 36 physicians, among them five of whom are pediatric rehabilitation trained physicians with two being PRM board certified. The department also has 26 PhD faculty, 4 of whom have a pediatric focus.  There is excellent camaraderie within and between departments which makes it a very pleasant work environment.
