Description: The UCLA Fellowship in Neurorehabilitation offers one fellow position each year for clinical and research training in neurorehabilitation. Clinical training in neurorehabilitation focuses on optimizing functional recovery of patients with various neurological conditions and occurs in both inpatient and outpatient settings.  Inpatient training occurs at California Rehabilitation Institute, a CARF-certified 138-bed hospital, under the guidance of neurologists and physiatrists specializing in stroke, traumatic brain injury, and spinal cord injury. Outpatient training occurs in the neurorehabilitation clinics within the UCLA Department of Neurology. 

The UCLA Fellowship in Neurorehabilitation is designed to develop the next generation of neurorehabilitation clinicians and physician-scientists. All fellows are encouraged to participate in research opportunities within the department, spanning translational neurological recovery, including kinematics with deep learning, telerehabilitation, electrophysiology, and preclinical investigations.
