Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine

The Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM) Fellowship at Children's Mercy Kansas City is a two-year ACGME-accredited fellowship designed to develop advanced skills in the diagnosis and treatment of children with disabilities. We offer a variety of clinical and educational experiences designed to develop leaders in the field of pediatric physiatry.

Clinical Experience

Our fellows participate in a broad range of outpatient clinics as well as inpatient and consultation services. We offer specialized training in all major areas of pediatric physiatry.

Academic Curriculum

The PRM curriculum is designed to advance each fellow’s knowledge and clinical skills to become a leader in the field. Educational opportunities include faculty-led didactics, subspecialist didactic series, journal clubs, grand rounds, and multidisciplinary conferences. We also offer several individualized educational opportunities to allow each fellow to focus on his/her individual interests.


Our faculty recognizes that being mentors and training future pediatric rehabilitation specialists is a privilege. We facilitate adult learning to advance a fellow’s independence as they progress through training. We provide a flexible, collegial educational environment that allows each fellow to thrive. Each faculty member has unique areas of clinical and research focus that will meet the needs of any incoming fellow. The program offers a formalized mentorship program to ensure fellows have personal and professional support as they prepare for a successful career in PRM.
