Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine

The Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine Fellowship at Children's Mercy Hospitals & Clinics is a two-year ACGME-accredited fellowship designed to develop advanced skills in the diagnosis and treatment of children with disabilities.

Academic Curriculum

Fellows will have completed an approved residency training program in physical medicine and rehabilitation and may have additionally completed a pediatrics residency or a joint pediatrics/PM&R residency. The PRM curriculum is divided into block rotations of three months each. Educational programs are held in conjunction with the University of Kansas Medical Center Core Rehabilitation Medicine Program.

Clinical Training

The clinical and didactic experiences are intended to expand the fellow’s knowledge of pediatric conditions resulting in disability including traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, Cerebral Palsy, neuromuscular disease, neural tube defects; amputations, and others in order to prepare them for a successful pediatric rehabilitation practice. 

The fellow will gain clinic exposure and experience in various developmental, pediatric, and neuromuscular disorders, rehabilitations, and therapies.


Our faculty recognizes that being mentors and training future pediatric rehabilitation specialists is a privilege. We will encourage our fellows to gain confidence and independence as they progress through training while providing a collegial educational environment that allows them to thrive. Our faculty is enthusiastic about their role as mentors and educators.
