I believe someone from my school did the externship. However, he was more interested in orthopedics. I recommend applying for the Northwestern externship. I'd love to see more seriously (or possibly interested) future applicants get early exposure to this exciting and continually evolving field of medicine. RIC is arguably one of the best places in the nation to get exposure to PM&R.

Go for it!

It looks like another NYCOM student who has possibly seen the light. Susan, unfortunately there is no such program in NYC that is similar to Northwestern. I did a 4th year elective at NYU. Ironically, the vast majority of NYU students are completely disinterested in PM&R. It is a totally overrated program but you'll get a good education. I believe that you are a 1st year? If so, I would try finding a physiatrist to work with over the summer. I do personally know of some Manhattan physiatrist (mostly sports team physicians) that are great to work with. Also, I heard that Dr. Rebecca Fishman, who completely residency at NUMC, is now one of the newest OMM faculty. She can definitely hook you up.

You can PM me.
