Burke Rehabilitation Hospital continues to build upon its reputation as an academic leader with the recent addition of fellowships in Brain Injury Medicine and Sports Medicine. The two fellowships were granted initial accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in January.

Burke will host two fellows for each program over the span of one year. During their time, fellows will rotate at Burke’s main campus in White Plains and other institutions affiliated with Albert Einstein College of Medicine and the Montefiore Health System, allowing broad exposure to the spectrum of care for patients with a wide range of conditions in both disciplines.

“Burke Rehabilitation Hospital is committed to training the next generation of physicians who strive for excellence in rehabilitation medicine,” said Burke Senior Vice President and Chief Medical Officer Mooyeon Oh-Park, MD, MS. “These fellowships help open the next chapter of our educational mission and enable us to thrive as an academic rehabilitation center dedicated to exceptional patient care, education, and research.”
