Spinal Cord Injury Medicine (SCIM) is a fascinating and rewarding specialty and our program is on a mission to provide excellent clinical care, educate future leaders in the field of SCIM, and conduct research to improve and advance the specialty. Our program, located in the Frazier Rehabilitation Institute, offers excellent clinical training in caring for one of the most medically challenging patients in the field of rehabilitation. Given the complexity of our patient population and the diversity of cases, our fellows will be uniquely prepared to face the challenges seen in the field of SCIM. Each fellow will train in the management of SCI patients through different environments, rotating through a variety of hospitals and clinical settings. This will enrich the fellow's knowledge of SCIM including a level 1 university hospital center, a state of the art rehabilitation facility, and busy multidisciplinary SCIM clinics where we focus on the chronic issues related to SCI.
We expect motivated fellows who want to actively participate in their learning and work together with our faculty to strengthen the program. Our faculty and staff are very proud of this new fellowship program and our aim is to graduate well-rounded SCIM providers with broad training experiences. We are certain that our graduating fellows will be well-equipped to become board certified in SCIM and practice successfully in giving excellent patient care with confidence.
