Temple University Hospital PM&R Residency Program at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation

Good Shepherd Rehabilitation collaborates with the Temple University Hospital Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) Residency Program, matching highly qualified candidates in the field of physiatry for a three-year categorical training program at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital.

The primary aim of the Temple University Hospital PM&R Residency Program at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation is to train physicians who specialize in PM&R. For decades, Temple has been a highly ranked training program and was one of the first programs in the country to create a formalized residency program in the field of PM&R.

“It truly is an honor to partner with such a high-performing residency program,” said Good Shepherd Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President of Medical Affairs Sandeep Singh, MD, FAAPMR. “Temple has produced some of the most prominent physician leaders in our industry, and we intend to carry on that legacy and enhance the program’s existing reputation.”

Through the Temple University Hospital/Good Shepherd partnership, residents have a majority focus on inpatient rehabilitation experience at the state-of-the-art Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Hospital in Center Valley, Pa., which opened in July 2023. The program includes:

  • Brain injury
  • Complex medical rehabilitation
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Stroke

Residents also have the opportunity to experience ambulatory services relevant to chronic disease populations.

At Good Shepherd, our goal is to provide an experience where training residents can fully understand the breadth and scope of physiatry. We model training around the future of value-based care and inspire future physiatrists to be thoughtful, forward-thinking clinical leaders, who will impact the outcomes of the communities we serve — primarily people with complex injuries and chronic disabilities — for decades to come.

Several of Good Shepherd’s physicians serve as faculty within Temple’s PM&R Department and have direct responsibility for the program’s success and integrity.

Many other Good Shepherd departments collaborate with the residents to explore and enhance opportunities for research, education and quality improvement.
