Welcome from Dr. David Rosenblum, Associate Program Director; Site Director Gaylord Hospital
Thank you for your interest in Connecticut’s first and only Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency.
Created in partnership with the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, Hartford Hospital, Gaylord Hospital, and UConn Health, the PM&R residency program is committed to training the next generation of physiatrists to deliver high-quality, evidence-based, and compassionate care to individuals with physical disabilities and impairments.
Physiatry is truly one of the most fulfilling disciplines in medicine. It is a chance to make a significant difference in the lives of people who have experienced life-altering illnesses or injuries.
As a rehabilitation-focused healthcare system, Gaylord Hospital is uniquely positioned to provide the hands-on training that the next generation of physiatrists needs to serve our community, not only in Connecticut but throughout the country.
Gaylord offers a broad continuum of care, including comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care, transitional living for brain injury and stroke, the largest adaptive sports program in the region, and the Milne Institute for Healthcare Innovation, a hub for accelerating world-class research and innovation.
Gaylord Hospital is one of only a few hospitals in the U.S. that is CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities) certified for comprehensive inpatient rehabilitation and subspecialty certified in spinal cord injury, brain injury, stroke, and outpatient.
Our reputation as one of the nation’s leading rehabilitation-focused healthcare systems, coupled with our location on almost 400 acres of pristine countryside in Wallingford, Connecticut, makes Gaylord the ideal environment for a comprehensive, immersive, and intensely gratifying learning experience.
We look forward to providing our PM&R residents the opportunity to learn and work alongside a cohesive team of physiatrists, clinicians, and rehabilitation experts to provide patient-centered care aimed at restoring function – and quality of life.
