Message from our Program Director

Greetings, and thank you for your interest in our Residency Program - 

The Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Program at UNC is committed to providing a strong foundation of general PM&R education with broad subspecialty exposure. We take pride in the balance of our program, preparing residents for their careers, subspecialty training, and the skills needed to practice in academic or community settings.

Dr. Filer

We recognize that residency is an important time for personal and professional growth; our environment is supportive, with appropriate clinical responsibilities, educational opportunities, and faculty expertise and availability. Our residents are bright, personable, and committed physicians who are invested in service and advocacy for their patients. Upon completion of residency and their entrance into the workforce, they are highly qualified physicians that are improving the quality of life for patients across the country. 

Our program benefits from committed faculty, a wonderfully diverse patient base, high standards of scholarship, a friendly environment, and a proud tradition of training physiatrists since 1999. We welcome you to explore what our program has to offer and thank you for your consideration. 

Sincerely,
William Filer, MD
Director, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Residency Training Program
