LLUMC Rehabilitation Residency - Application and Selection

Residency Program - application and selection

There are 22 residents in the program, in two separate tracks.  There are four residents in each of the 4-years of the integrated program, and these positions are filled at the PGY-1 level through the National Resident Match Program (NRMP).  In addition, there are 2 residents in each of the 3-years of the PM&R core program, and appointments for this track are made at the PGY-2 level outside the match.  

Applications for the integrated program are only received through ERAS, and applicants are assessed on the basis of academic record, references, and personal qualities without prejudice of race, color, sex, or religion. The program attempts to attract some candidates whose career interests are academic. Particular consideration in the selection of all candidates is given to those personal qualities that are important in the field of rehabilitation medicine. The residency committee makes the final selection.

Candidates for the PGY-1 positions are invited to visit Loma Linda for an interview on one of the six Fridays during December and January.

For further details about appointment to each of these two tracks see the page on Resident Appointment.
