Shirley Ryan Ability Lab

Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Neurorehabilitation Fellowship

The Shirley Ryan Ability Lab (formerly the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago) is offering a new program - the first-ever fellowship in Parkinson’s Disease (PD) and Movement Disorders Neurorehabilitation, starting in July 2021. This one-year fellowship is dedicated to training physiatrists in the principles of neurorehabilitation as applied to PD and movement disorders. Shirley Ryan AbilityLab has been designated the “No. 1 Rehabilitation Hospital in America” by U.S. News & World Report every year since 1991 and is an affiliate of Northwestern University. The fellowship program, directed by Dr. Jennifer Goldman, will provide an educational training experience incorporating didactics, clinical care management, scientific research, and mentorship opportunities. The clinical experience will encompass the continuum of rehabilitative care for individuals with PD and movement disorders and management across the disease spectrum. Rotations will occur at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab outpatient clinics, inpatient units, and Day Rehabilitation facilities and Northwestern Medicine Neurology/Movement Disorders clinics. The fellowship is designed to provide a comprehensive educational experience that will prepare the trainee with the evaluation and management skills needed to provide optimal care to patients with PD and movement disorders.
