by Regina Sester | Oct 18, 2018
We are recruiting for our next cohort of scholars. We have a two-stage application process. The next deadline for brief preliminary applications is November 15, 2018. For details, see The Neurorehabilitation and Restorative Neuroscience Training Network (NRNTN) provides outstanding research training and mentorship for clinical scholars in Neurorehabilitation and prepares rehabilitation clinician investigators for sustained and productive academic careers in Neurorehabilitation. NRNTN is funded by the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research, NIH/NICHD.

This early career development and mentorship program seeks to prepare individuals with advanced neurorehabilitation related degrees (MD, MD/PhD neurologists, neurosurgeons, geriatricians, physiatrists and other physicians interested in neurorehabilitation, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech language pathologists and others) who will be in a position to define the mechanisms  underlying neural plasticity and recovery of function following CNS injury, to identify and implement methods to enhance that recovery, and to influence health care and policy to benefit individuals with disabilities.  The NRNTN brings together a regional network of 8 leading academic clinicians and scientists in Neurorehabilitation to provide mentored research training and career development for junior faculty level clinicians in Neurorehabilitation. 

Our leadership team is composed of members from several clinical disciplines who are accomplished investigators:

  • Georgetown University Medical Center
  • MedStar National Rehabilitation Hospital
  •  Johns Hopkins University/Kennedy Krieger Institute
  • Cornell University/Burke Neurologic Institute
  • Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions
  • Harvard University
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology

If you or your junior faculty would like more information or would like to discuss the program and application process, please contact either of us.
