Burke Rehabilitation Hospital, located in White Plains, NY, announces the 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, according to a news release.

Burke will host two fellows for each program over the span of 1 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.

“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, in the release.

“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.”

Karen Morice, MD, who is board certified in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) and Sports Medicine, will direct the Sports Medicine Fellowship, while Erika Trovato, DO, MS, board certified in Brain Injury Medicine and PM&R, will direct the Brain Injury Medicine Fellowship. 

The first group of fellows are expected to join the Burke graduate medical education programs in July 2020.
