What is the role of the Interventional Physiatrist compared to the "Regular" Physiatrist in patient care. Also, is a pain management fellowship the only route to becoming qualified in interventional PM&R?
Should try to be involved in pain related research and do elective rotations with pain specialists who can support your fellowship application. I don't think where you do residency is as important as how you structure your residency experience to get the educational exposure you need.Originally posted by marathon chick
I've read in earlier threads that PM&R is not really hard to get a residency in general,but what about fellowships after residency-I know the fellowship programs are much harder to land than the residency. What should a PGY-1-3's be doing (doing research and scoring high on the service exams) to make him/her attractive to fellowship program? Also, I am applying to PM&R residency programs next month-does it matter where you did you residency program or it only matter what you did during your residency and letters of rec.?
