Marianjoy Physical Medicine and

Rehabilitation Residency Program

Since 1994, resident physicians have gained valuable exposure to physical medicine and rehabilitation medicine by learning from nationally known teaching faculty at Marianjoy Rehabilitation Hospital.

The Chicago Medical School at Rosalind Franklin University of North Chicago, Illinois is an academic affiliate of the Marianjoy Residency Program. This mutual affiliation allows us to share our resources to further augment the field of physical medicine and rehabilitation.

Marianjoy's three-year physical medicine and rehabilitation training program, includes clinical experience, vast educational opportunities and research activities, is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

Our curriculum strikes an excellent balance between inpatient and outpatient responsibilities to provide an educational experience of the highest quality. Our graduates are well-prepared to enter clinical practice, pursue a fellowship or establish an academic career at the end of their broad-based training.

Our program is a three-year program beginning at the post-graduate year two level.
