    I was looking for a research position possibly in pmr or pain. I was wondering if any body has any ideas of where to look. I prefer in the NYC area.
    it seems like there isn't much research in pmr.
    Thanks

    You are right, there is not much research in PM&R. It is a major problem in our specialty. The NYC programs, including Long Island are also weak in PM&R research. The best places to find research positions are Kessler in NJ (definitely) and possibly Cornell/Columbia (I believe more of their research is inpatient and neurorehab). If you are willing to live further away then you should check out the NIH.

    Todd Stitik at UMDNJ has a good track record in mentoring medical students interested in MSK research. He would be worth contacting

    A buddy of mine did research at the NIH in the Rehabilitation Department. I believe he worked with a "Dr. Shah". Although I can double check. Look into it.
