Covid Calls

Vaccine Scheduling Update: We’re experiencing very high call volumes from people interested in getting the COVID-19 vaccine. Currently, our vaccine supply is very small, and we are unable to accept phone calls to schedule vaccine appointments. Please check back here for updates.

Resident research at Penn is headed by Michelle J. Johnson, PhD and includes a formal didactic series on research methodology and techniques. Residents are expected to participate in a longitudinal research project throughout residency.

All residents are expected to present their research as a PGY-4 at the annual Penn PM&R and GSPP Research Day.
