Neurorehabilitation Fellowship Program
Director: James Alexis MacDonald, Jr., MD
We offer a one year fellowship in neurorehabilitation, the clinical science of guiding and sustaining the rehabilitation of patients with neurological and musculoskeletal injuries or diseases. Fellows participate in the care of inpatients and outpatients with stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, and neuromuscular disorders. Our training program includes weekly didactic conferences provided by our PM&R attending physicians and outside speakers from other specialties and disciplines. The fellows will have opportunities to spend elective time in either interventional pain management, electrodiagnostic medicine, pediatric neurorehabilitation or musculoskeletal medicine. Inpatients are treated in a state-of-the-art rehabilitation hospital and consults in the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Outpatient opportunities include spasticity management with botulinum toxin injection or intrathecal baclofen pumps, an interventional pain management clinic, spinal cord injury clinic and a brain injury clinic.
