The Georgetown University School of Medicine in conjunction with MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital in conjunction with offers an ACGME-accredited fellowship in Brain Injury Medicine. Two tracks currently are available: a one-year clinical track and a two-year clinical-research track.

The fellowship will provide an additional year of training to develop skills necessary for the management of acquired brain injury throughout the continuum of care.  In addition to extensive experience on the inpatient Brain Injury unit and outpatient clinics at MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital, the fellow has the opportunity to work closely with the neuropsychology staff and its postdoctoral candidates.  Research is required during both the one-year clinical and the two-year clinical-research tracks.

Rotations also are available MedStar Washington Hospital Center, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, and ReMed Recovery Care in neurocritical care, neurorehabilitation, and various brain injury-related subspecialties.

We will participate in the National Brain Injury Match. See the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP) website under “Rehabilitation Medicine Match” for additional details.
