Spaulding’s physicians offer six major inpatient programs in rehabilitation. Each program is interdisciplinary, bringing the skills of a team of rehabilitation specialists to bear on the unique needs of each patient.

Program Overview | Spaulding Rehabilitation Network


Hosted by Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital (SRH) in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, the Harvard Medical School Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Residency is a three year program commencing in post-graduate year two (PGY-2).


Combining extensive clinical experience, robust didactic training and generous research opportunities within the Harvard system, the program assures that residents meet all ACGME requirements, while also receiving ample opportunities to develop individual professional interests.


Spaulding is ranked 5th in the country among rehabilitation hospitals by US News and World Report and is the only current U.S. hospital chosen by the National Institute of Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR) as a Model Systems Site for Burn Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury and Spinal Cord Injury.  Our residents care for patients at Spaulding’s new, state­ of ­the ­art facility in Boston, which has been hailed as a national model for “green” and inclusive design.

I would like to thank Dr, Frankel and the 6th floor staff for all you have done for me while at Spaulding. Since my return in Israel, I am doing fine. I am sure the foundations of my fast recovery have been laid at Spaulding, and am very grateful for what you and your staff have done during my stay.
