Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Program

Welcome from Dr. Chmiel

Welcome to McMaster University's PM&R Program Page!

I have the distinct pleasure of working with one of the biggest Physiatry Staff and Resident groups in the country.

We have doubled in size over the last decade and we provide robust core rotation as well as elective Physiatry experiences. Many of our recently graduated Staff members have a keen interest in Interventional Physiatry and we have new Staff in the area of ABI and Pediatric Rehabilitation.

Our curriculum is under continuous development and we have recently revamped the Academic Half Day schedule to provide our learners with a multitude of knowledge and skills, including OSCE performance.


We support Residents in their research endeavors and encourage attendance to relevant national and international Physiatry conferences.
