Said it in another thread but maybe more applicable here. Diggin the info on PM&R from the resident perspective. Keep it comin:thumbup:

I know my school's students often do rotations at Northwestern b/c their PD is a DO. I don't know about specific details though.

Hey Fozzy

One of Western University's core rotation sites is Rancho Los Amigos. practically every single student will rotate there before graduation. some, will rotate there over several months on different services.

Neurology, ID, Pulm, endocrine, are all considered core rotations at Rancho. PM&R (brain injury, stroke, SCI - depending on attending selection) is also available as an elective.

That's great that you have a rotation site that has PM&R period!

I know that some allopathic schools have required rotations (i.e. Jefferson, UW, Northwestern.)

Any other osteopathic schools with a required PM&R rotation?
At KCOM a required selective between PM&R, orthopedics or neurology.

4th year and I'm sure it varies by location. I would also wonder about the availability of the rotation at different sites (such as Kirksville -- not sure there's a PM&R physician any closer than Columbia but I'd have to investigate that).
