At NYU Langone Health’s Rusk Rehabilitation, we offer physicians, researchers, fellows, residents, therapists, neuropsychologists, and medical students a broad scope of educational, research, and clinical programs at multiple locations.

We provide a full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation care to people of all ages for a wide range of conditions and injuries, including cardiac, neuromuscular, oncologic, musculoskeletal, pulmonary, and stroke.

In addition to our tremendously talented physicians and nurses, we have a terrific group of therapists, social workers, and support staff—all of whom are ready to prepare the next generation of rehabilitation specialists. We encourage you to explore the various opportunities to train at one of the most renowned rehabilitation locations in the country.

We are proud to belong to a worldwide rehabilitation community that is dedicated to making sure patients not only survive but also thrive and achieve their greatest potential. As we look to the future, we plan to continue to expand access to rehabilitation medicine, engage in valuable research, and exercise our passion for restoring our patients’ abilities.
