Physician Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency
The Penn State Health Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Residency Program offers many opportunities for growth and experience in the medical field.
Penn State Hershey Medical Center (PSHMC) is the only medical facility in Pennsylvania to be accredited as both an adult and a pediatric Level 1 trauma center, with 551 licensed beds and 63 associated specialty practices located at 24 clinics in eight central Pennsylvania counties.
Our Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation department was established in 2010 with the opening of the 54-bed Penn State Hershey Rehabilitation Hospital (PSHRH), a joint venture between Select Medical and the Penn State Hershey Medical Group.
This unique venture between a premier academic medical center and a for-profit rehabilitation organization was so successful that PSHRH was expanded in 2014 to include an additional 44 beds (22 of them dedicated to Transitional Care), a Wound Care Center and an Outpatient Day Program. PSHRH is both Joint Commission and CARF accredited.
For those interested in research, the 4,500-square-foot Penn State PM&R Research Laboratories include Exercise, Body Composition, Locomotor Training and Gait Laboratories at the Hershey Center for Applied Research (HCAR), and complement the Penn State Center for Translational Science Institute (CTSI), one of only 64 National Institutes of Health-funded infrastructures that promotes and supports clinical/translational research on both the medical as well as State College campuses.
