Education is the key component to the NYU PM&R residency training program and therefore, program leadership continuously strives to reach a delicate balance of learning and service.

The Residency Education Curriculum is organized into an 12-month cycle that covers all of the core topics covered by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. This ensures that all residents will complete a full cycle of learning thrice during their residency at NYU, twice as a junior resident, and once as a senior resident.  Quarterly board style multiple choice exams are administered throughout your 3-year residency to optimize the successful passing of the PM&R board certification exam.

The topics discussed in the Resident Lecture Series, Journal Club and Grand Rounds, described below, correspond to the topics of the 12-month cycle.
