Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Scholarships, Grants, & Awards
Winning medical school scholarships and awards can provide a major boost to your residency application, and set you apart from your peers.
According to the 2016 NRMP Program Directors Survey:
60% of physical medicine and rehabilitation residency programs cited awards or special honors in clinical clerkships as a factor used to make interview decisions.
40% of physical medicine and rehabilitation residency programs cited awards or special honors in basic sciences as a factor used to make interview decisions.
In another survey of PM&R residency programs, medical school awards were ranked higher in the residency selection process than published research and election to AOA.
Awards can be placed in the application, MSPE (Dean's Letter), letters of recommendation, and CV. We have found that interviewers often ask about awards during residency interviews.
