Abstract

Boninger ML, Chan L, Harvey R, et al: Resident research education in physical medicine and rehabilitation: a practical approach. Am J Phys Med Rehabil 2001;80:706–712.

The Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education includes training in research as a required component of physical medicine and rehabilitation residency programs. Unfortunately, there is a lack of practical information on how to meet this requirement. In this paper, information is provided for individuals involved in resident education on how to teach residents about research.
